Captain Gregson

Captain Gregson was very well known on the Island in the early 1900s. He was responsible for many buildings on Canvey both as an architect and builder. The most famous of his buildings was the old Oysterfleet Lighthouse which it is rumoured he built to house his mother-in-law especially to keep her out of his home.

We have recently met up with his Granddaughter Leonie who has provided us with some interesting items which will be appearing here in the coming weeks.
