Please can anyone help me.

I am researching my family tree and would like to find information about my grandfather Lewis Russell King.
My grandfather lived with a family called Collier, Harry I beleive to be his name would anyone know of this family.Lewis was also the propritor of the Roseneath Cycle Depot as I have a poster with his name on which I think maybe about 70-80 years old.Would anyone have any photos of the shop.

Many thanks
Jeannette

Hi,
I believe that it was in Main Street Uplyme next to a butcher's shop.In a photo that is in The Book of Uplyme it say's about a butcher's shop on the corner of Gore Lane with a tea room formerly a cycle shop.
Hope this may help.

There was an Ian Collier who used to own Amhurst Lodge just outside of the village. Could that have been the family I wonder ? Not sure where Ian is now, but his daughter, Jane (now Mrs.Thomas) works at the primary school in Uplyme.

I will ask about the cycle shop in the pub on Sunday.

Geoff.

Hi Jeannette

Sorry, I haven't had the opportunity to speak with anyone about the Cycle Depot yet.

Yes please, by all means send your pictures to webmaster@uplyme.com and they will be published with the others.

Cheers,
Geoff.

Hi Jeanette,

Not very good news I'm afraid - I asked a good friend of mine Terry Matthews who has lived in the village man and boy. He distinctly remembers using the butchers shop on the corner - run by Mr E Wheadon (as can be seen of the front cover of 'The Book of Uplyme' however, he has no recollection of a cycle depot in the village let alone next to the butchers.

I will ask others, but I wonder if it predates the current generations ? Do you have any dates at all ?

Sorry we couldn't be more helpful this time.

Geoff.

Hi Jeannette,
My family name is Collier and Uncle Harry lived with Auntie Ivy in Venlake Uplyme until the mid 70's when Ivy died. Don't know your grandfathers name though
