  • Hello, Brenda Ferdinand and 63 years have passed. How smug of me to think I could remember all the names. I defer to your greater knowledge and know you are correct. You may not realise but the Ferdinand family in Cowper Avenue were related to me. Nice to know somebody read my submission.  Keep reading this website and I look forward to reading something from you about Tilbury in better times.
