Historical Info

My dear departed Dad’s birth certificate states that he was born at “Le Buoys” Waarden Road, in 1928. We have been told by several relatives that he was born on a boat, but I have been unable to verify this. I found a photo in a book of the Lakeside in 1928 (photo to follow when I find it), and there were just a few timber roughcasts along the side of the lake. I would love to know if there were boats there at that time as I believe the Lake was more open to the creek in those days.  

It particulary interests me because I only discovered this long after he passed away, and when I found out I was living on a boat myself! Coincidence – or is it in the blood…

Some unrelated photos of Canvey follow.
