Brentford Families - Grant & PayneSandra Graves (nee Payne) writes
Grant familyMy mother Louise Payne (nee Grant) born 1910 grew up and lived in Brentford all her life. She lived at 63, Albany Road, a small cottage that sat next to the alley way that runs along Berkerley House. Her parents were William and Charlotte Grant.
In 1901 William & Charlotte Grant lived at 3 Burdetts Row, Albany Road, Old Brentford. All were born in Brentford except Charlotte, who was born in Isleworth.
Sandra remembers 'William and Charlotte Grant had 8 children. They were Louise, May, Daisy,Helen,Sarah,Ada,Tom and Bill'.
William Grant married Charlotte Allen in Brentford Registration District in the last quarter of 1892.Top
My father was John Alfred Payne he married my mother Louise Grant in 1936
My grandparents lived at Thames Bank House, Goat Wharf. Their names were William and Bridget Payne. I have an obituary from the newspaper for Bridget, she died in 1931.
In 1901 William & Bridget Payne were living at 19 Bond Street Chiswick, both aged 26. They had married in 1894 (their marriage was registered in the Brentford Registration District), Bridget's maiden name was Hemmings.
They had two daughters in 1901: Elizabeth aged 4 and baby Ellen. William was a general labourer and Bridget worked in a laundry. No. 20 Bond Street was occupied by John Payne, aged 49 and his wife and family: perhaps he was William's father.
In 1911 the Payne family was living in Brentford:
Sandra remembers 'William and Bridget Payne had 6 children John, George,Ada, Elizabeth,Nellie,and Dolly' and adds 'they all lived in Brentford all their lives'.
