Terrace For Sale

Terrace For Sale

Lambert Terrace in Easington; more lots from the sale catalogue loaned by Mrs Waton. Five lots in all including a village store with a rent £14-18s-8d per year. Three cottages bringing in £48-16s per year and the village post office rent £18-4s per year. A grand total of just over £81-00, not bad for 1946.

Pauline Dolling tells us: ”I had a distant relative (my grandmother’s brother) who I think lived in this terrace at this time.  He was Frank Wood who was a local gamekeeper in the Grinkle area.  He would regularly visit my grandmother; who would often have a rabbit or pheasant hanging behind her pantry door at 1 West Road Loftus.  Frank was a single man, I wonder if anyone remembers him and has any other information about him;  i.e. Was his name listed as paying rental on one of the cottages listed in Lambert Terrace?  I would love to hear more of him.”
