Deptford Green

A number of my ancestors and Grandparents + lived in and around Deptford Green. Mainly New Street and Stowage. My Grandmother would have been around 12 in the picture with the children looking toward the camera. My Great Grandfather (her Dad) was a Thames Barge Lighterman, one of three who were bonded by their fathers. There are probably more Lightermen in my family tree, yet to be discovered.
Great site, totally fascinating.
