    My mother has just located an article about Amelia Winters, I have yet to see it but it appears it wasn't only her family and boarders but she was baby farming. IE taking illegimate babys off mothers, insuring them, killing them and collecting the insurance money.

    Will keep you updated

  • Re: driscoll family in deptford by Terry Riley (Member 10239543) on 12-Sep-2010
    Hi Sandy,
    i have a Danny Driscoll in my family tree who was probably born about 1905, he is not a direct family member so i dont know much about him. I know he used to drink in the Adam & Eve pub in Peckham High St. and had a daughter Margaret circa 1925 who married into my family (Claude Dennington).
    Not much help i suppose?


  • Re: driscoll family in deptford by Paul Masters (Member 10255802) on 20-Mar-2011
    My grandfather owned The Adam & Eve in Peckham High Street in the 1920s and 30s and he died at the pub in 1935. Interestingly, my grandmother's family name was O'Driscoll, and they were from Limerick and Cork, but probably no relation to your family.
