Did you live on the Manor Estate in the 1930s - 50s?

Recommended Posts

Further to my previous Chrishall.

My mum Rose MARIE Antoinette Paramore was also born in 1947 and registered at number 78.

Her parents were married at St Swithuns.

Mum always told us about a strict convent school. Would anyone any ideas what RC school she may have gone to?

 

I think that School may have been St Theresas on Prince of Wales Road, I lived at number 123 Harborough Avenue and I remember the Argent family among others. I went to St Theresas but it wasnt a convent School she may have gone to Notre dame but you only went there if you passed your 11 plus I think. My Brother in Law Jim Dolby lived at No 92 but Im afraid all the houses have been demolished.

I went to St theresa's in the 60s that was just an ordinary catholic school. I think she means Notra Dame Catholic High School, you went there if you passed your 11 plus. JP

I have put an advert on Ebay for them to email me if one becomes available. I am now going to try Amazon.

I've just found out a relative was born on Bassledene Rd (number eighteen) and I've seen reference in this thread to the same family name. It's a long shot because of the age but her name was Margaret Newton, born there in 1929. Anyone any long memories?

Hi

I was born at 63 Stonecliffe Rd in '47, I started work in the building trade when I was 15 and worked with a Ron Bennett from the Fretson Rd area I think, he was 2 or 3 years my senior and sounds like your mate, he was a tall gangly lad?

Yes I was an apprentice tiler same as him. I remember Melvyn Wright, he was a bit older than me, used to be a bit flash playing mabs, had a sister Jean and they lived next to the jennel. Pete Lowe had a sister, also Jean, lived next door to the McLennans, their son Georgie was a pal of my older brother Ivan Hall - born '39

 

Definitely like time travelling.

I recall the Wilkinsons top of Stonecliffe and all the Hollands as well, their mum used to call them for tea, Mo, Do, Mick, Den etc etc. everyone had a different call from their parents. Next door to us were the Barkers with Trevor, Keith and Patricia. On the circle from Harborough Ave it was Turner, Hudson, Smedley, MacLennan, Ford, Barnsley, Wright. The tip was our favourite place, remember stinking nannies? I recall us all being on top of the little cliff as they dug it back with the excavator to make room for the Steel Inn. Last house on Stonecliffe on the left before Manor Park was built was nicknamed Walsh's Farm? It's the other way round now with open ground on the Manor Estate side.
