3rd November -
Baptism of Christiana Jessie Musgrove
By November 1869 the Musgrove's had moved to 33 Glyn Street, Upper Kennington
Lane. Their 2 year old daughter Christiana Jessie was baptised at the
Church of St Mary the Less in Lambeth. The extract from the register shown
above confirms George Musgrove's occupation at this time was still a railway
porter. Note that Christiana is listed as son of rather than daugher of
George and Christiana. These errors happened occasionally.
The photo below shows the Church of St Mary the Less which was demolished
in the 1960's. The map below shows Glyn Street (coloured red) and the
immediate area at the time the Musgrove's lived there. The advert Right shows the property being sold in 1879.
Glyn Street is photographed below 100 years later,
