His great grandfather, Charles Vaughan was born at ‘Lambs Corner’, St Owen Street in 1864. Charles, who died in 1938, was a hawker, “quite a common trade at the time. He also served in the army for twelve years, seeing action in the Sudan crisis of 1885.
“Charles married Anni Bridges in 1893. She was born in St James Street and lived at Number 1, The Yard. It’s my belief that The Yard was directly next 96 St Owen Street, which is now, I believe, flats. The next house, which belonged to my cousin’s for some years, was next to The Victory, formerly The Bricklayers.”
