The Lipscomb Family
I wonder if anyone can remember the Lipscomb Family? They lived in Bridge Street. Ernest Lipscomb and his wife had three children Ernie, Bob & Clarice.
When Bob married Rose, he built his own house next to his parents (He was a builder by trade) and they had a daughter Robina.
Clarice married Gerald Andrews in 1946 (They are my parents) and Bob and Gerald built an extension to the original family home for them to live in. My Sister Elaine was born in 1958 and the family moved from there in 1959 the year before I was born.
There doesn’t seem to be much information on web sites about Bridge Street, yet I know it existed as I carried out a geography project for my CSE’s on the Basildon and the plotlands in the 1970s and visited it many times with my parents.
