  • Hello Doris.T My ancestral line imcludes the Glazebrooks of Manchester. I was recently in Letty Green looking for a house in Woolmers Lane called “Glazebrook” wherein my late grandfather resided until 1938. I was unable to find the house; perhaps you know of it’s location and/or the history of the name. It was referred to in the July 1940 land registry entries as belonging to Mr and Mrs Scott.

  • Wow. I love the photo. But do you know the names of any of the others in the picture. And what can you tell me about Hertingfordbury, Letty Green, in fact all the Greens, etc. Names of people. Have you ever met anyone by the name of Templeman, or Glassbrook/Glazebrook, or Waller? You say that your father lived at 1 Station Road. On one of our Census returns for Letty Green, has numbers alongside it. Like 38, 39, etc. Is this an actual address? Sorry to bombard you with questions, but I was so excited to see your item. Unfortunately my mother’s ancestors (Templeman) were poor people and we have no idea where in St Mary’s they are buried. Regards Edna (mothers name Templeman)
