    • I came across your website quite by chance, but I - and much more my mother - had links with the Hougham and Hollaway families for many years. 'Eshie' worked as a mother's help for my maternal grandmother, Marjorie Kate Oldham, in north London (Barnet, Hadley) after the birth of my mother, (Margaret) Mary Oldham, in 1922. I think it was at that time that she became known as 'Eshie': her actual names were Ethel Maud, and she was born in July 1889, dying in the early 1980s, and is buried in Faversham Cemetery. When my mother began her teaching career in Watford in 1944 Eshie moved there with her, to help look after her, and when she then got a job in Ashford (1948), Eshie again came with her. My mother met my father in Ashford and four years later - 1952 - they were married. My parents bought a bungalow in Kennington for Eshie (which she rented from them), doing the same in Herne Bay after we moved there in 1970. When my mother was a child, Eshie would take her to stay with her sister, Lilian Hougham, in Herne Bay, and she did the same with me and my sister in the late 1950s and early 1960s. My mother got to know Lilian's daughter Joan (b.1917) well, as she stayed with my grandparents when she was a student in London.
      Writing about Eshie, whose name my sister and I turned first to 'Tishie' and then 'Aunt Tish', brings back many memories!
      Apologies for rambling on! With best wishes, Peter Horton
