The Eagles
« on: August 10, 2006, 11:55:52 AM »
THought I would post this as a seperate thread. as lost on the downham shops thread.

Dad remembers the Eagles from Tristram Road he thinks that one of them used to be friends with his neighbours george and john Storey of 396 Downham way.
I was also wondering about the Eagles.
  I went to School with Sharon Eagle(born about 1972) she lived in Hazelbank with her PArents and brother Brian(born about 1975) and Sister Denise(born about 1970ish.

Is this any relation to Dickie?

 yes, I did live in Tristram Rd. as the elder of four kids, my sister Louisa (aka Rene ). brother Joe. and a much younger brother Barry,born 1947. I left in 1946 officialy but had been away from home since 1942 on and off,   The Eagle familywere from Bermondsey, about eight boys and four girls.  my father and two brothers came to Downham, another to Bellingham, so we were surrounded by cousins most of whom have passed away but had families of their own. I once picked up an attractive girl at the "Bell" in Bromley and walking her home , during the conversation it transpired she was a cousin  also  so a pleasant evening culminated in us both going in where neither my uncle or aunt recognised me !until I used uncles christian name and the penny dropped.  At least I got a cup of tea and kissed  "J" goodnight . Now of course it would be quite legal if we wanted to marry  !           dickie.................

Dad lived at 394 Downham way and the storys lived next door to him. So that was 396 for sure as the numbers went up towards Grovepark. Their houses backed on to Lancelot primary school. So that section between Southover and Lancelot.
