Brentford Families - Padbury

Dave Padbury wrote in August 2011:

Short note on my family in Brentford. My g g grandfather Edward Padbury 1819-84 came here from Hampshire in 1842. He was a Blacksmith and then a beer seller at the Jolly Gardeners in Drum Lane.

Edward Padbury married Eliza Lee (1821-1881); they were at 2 Drum Lane with William and Ann Lee in 1851 and at the Jolly Gardeners Drum Lane in 1861 (with Ann Lee, widow, beer seller) and in 1871; they had 6 children:

  • Eliza Padbury 1845-1915 married William Taylor (see Update below)
  • William Padbury 1849-78 married Louisa Carter
  • Edward Padbury 1851-1905 married Mary Ann Park; Edward was a Greengrocer in North Road
  • John Frederick Padbury 1854-1919 married Louisa James daughter of William Henry James 1815-77; John was a potato dealer and beer retailer in Ealing Road; in 1891 he was running a Tradesman Shop at 13 Ealing Road; 1901 at the same address as a beer retailer;1911 he is at 58 Albany Road as a retired beer house keeper; he died at this address in 1919; he had a large Brentford family, 7 children:
    • Louisa Padbury 1879-1907 married John Allen
    • John Frederick Padbury 1881-1960 married Lina George 1886-1957 from Harlington; John worked for the Gas Board and lived at 79 Ealing Road; he had 1 son John Padbury 1908-1956, he married Hilda Spencer 1910-2001
    • William Henry Padbury 1882-1917 married Elizabeth Price
    • Emma Padbury 1886-9
    • Eliza Padbury 1887-1965 married Albert Henry Coles (Albert Coles ran a couple of Brentford pubs)
    • Walter Padbury 1890-1967 married Sarah Francis (I think Walter was landlord of the Lord Nelson pub in Enfield Road)
    • Edward Padbury 1893 married Annie Francis; lived at 77 Ealing Road
  • Maria Padbury 1857-1932 married Charles Brown
  • Frances Padbury 1843-64 maried John Ezra Hawkins; Edward Padbury brought up their son Alfred Ezra after they both died in the 1860s

My family lived at 41 Mafeking Avenue 1932-56 and then the Clayponds Estate.

Dave has also provided details of his research into the Bissell and James families and contributed to the Dear family details.


In August 2021 Nancy Taylor got in touch:
I am the daughter of John William Taylor and Rebecca Taylor m. March 1965. My father was born in Isleworth in 1938.
My Grandparents were Jack Taylor and Mary (nee) Allen.
My paternal Great-grandparents were William Taylor and Eliza Padbury, who are mentioned above.


Since Dave Padbury wrote in 2011 a lot of material has been added to the site - thank you to contributors - and a search for Padbury on the home page brings up several items.
