Do you remember Dr Sansom of Green Lanes? Christine Ryland is working on her family history, and wonders if anyone can help.
There were three Dr Sansoms, she explains
A great uncle named Bertram Eli Sansom was a Doctor – address, 14 The Villas, Green Lanes, Palmers Green. His practice address was 143, Chase Side, with one of his sons, S.V. Sansom. Another son’s practice address was 178 Green Lanes, (later 190).
Bertram Eli’s dates are 1877 – 1952 and he would have been in Palmer’s Green in the early 1900’s. We have letters dated 1921 and 1925 when he was at 14, The Villas.
Any extra info that you may be able to add will be received most gratefully.
I am guessing that the Villas could be those on the west of Green Lanes between the Fox and Hoppers Road, which were built before 1900 and are some of the oldest remaining houses in Palmers Green.
If you remember the Sansoms, or know someone who might, please contact Christine at firstname.lastname@example.org. And drop us a line too!
