These photos are fantastic history for me. William and Florence were my great grandparents. their daughter Ada Casson, was my nan. My dad Len Casson and mum Jean moved to canevey in 1965 from Leyton.

Dad had cousins called Buckmaster, Margret was one. I can also remember Bert and May Hoad.

Dad helped evacuate William and Florance from Wildrych road during the 1953 flood. By sheer coincidence, dads brother Ken and Margret, his wife, moved into a bunglow on the same spot in Wildrych, as his grandparents had.

i have the Echo somewhere, with the photo featured here, of William and Florance leaving Canvey.

I'm sure alot of my auntys are in John's photos.

Darryl Hoad is my 2nd cousin. Alot of my auntys moved to canvey in the 70s.

This page is realy interesting for me. So much history.
