Thanks Rob. Interesting that Dr Brown moved to Chigwell several years before he retired from his City Police job.

Yes it is. About 11 years before he retired. Chigwell is about 10 miles outside the City of London so it was a fair old trek to work.

He seems to have kept up dual phone numbers for London and Chigwell at least part of the time, so he was contactable.

Hi Robert

Were the same postal addresses quoted for each?

All the best

Hi Dave

It was 17 Finsbury Circus, and 'Tailours' Chigwell. He left 25 000, which was a goodly sum. The house in Chigwell sounds very handsome with 16 rooms, but the poor old boy lived with two sisters-in-law, two nieces and three female servants, so as far as he was concerned it was probably only 15 rooms, the bathroom being out of bounds.

Hi Robert

I swear, without even having a clue who you are, I'm gonna love you till the day I die!

I assume Finsbury Circus is a surgery address?

All the best

Dave

Thanks Dave. Well, in 1911 in the electoral register, one Arthur Philip Gibbons was listed at 17 Finsbury Circus. However in the 1911 census he seems to be at Eldon St (no number), EC. Eldon Street was associated with Brown :

http://www.casebook.org/witnesses/fr...don-brown.html

Brown was at 17 Finsbury Circus in 1901 and 1891. In 1881 the number was 16 Finsbury Circus.

In 1901 there are two female Gibbons listed at 17 Finsbury Circus, described as cousins, so I can't help feeling that Arthur Gibbons was a relative of Brown (Arthur was also a surgeon, and that's probably him with his wife mentioned in the newspaper item).

This thread is of interest :

I don't understand the topography and it will need Clacky to sort it out.

I wonder what happened to Mrs. Gordon Brown. The obituary stated she died shortly after the move to Chigwell.

Jeff, oddly, Emily seems to have died under the name of Emily Gordon Brown! (Q3 1905 Epping).

I must have missed something. Why is it odd if she calls herself Emily Gordon Brown - it's the same last names as her husband.
