Edwin Nunn
1841-1929

Edwin Nunn, my grandfather, was born in Islington at his father's schoolhouse and at the age of 23 was married to Henrietta Anne Carter at what was then known as Holy Trinity Church, a short walk down the road in Cloudesley Square. From then on the couple were constantly on the move, to Kent, back to London, then Gravesend, Hackney and Edmonton. They had ten children and, in contrast to the previous generation, all but one of them survived. Seven of the children, including my father, were born in Gravesend. Edwin is variously described as an accountant and as a stockbroker.
