By Vera Wright

I just discovered your website while searching a map of the Watford area…then I suddenly found The Rookery.  I have been researvhing my ancestors looking for a George Henry Drury married to my grt. Grandmother Jessie Maria Drury. They appeared to be living at 34 The Rookery , Oxhey in the 1891 census. For 20 years I have been trying to discover when he died and location as by 1901, she was then living in what became my birth town Teddington, Middx. I now reside in Calgary, alberta, Canada andvam nearly 77. I would love to see a photo of the Rookery. I hadnt realised they had torn it down. The name seems so pleasant.  Vera Wright

  • I have just seen a 1920’s photo of Rookery Village on Facebook The Original Watford Memories and History Group. I do hope this will be useful to Vera Wright.
