Markham's Chase Young Pupils

Three photos taken at Markham’s Chase School during the time my future wife’s, who appears in all of them, was there. A date on the back of the second photo is 20 July 1960 but not sure of when the other two were taken.

    This must be an early picture of this year. I am disappointed I can’t remember any more , I think 12 is Derek Callow

  • I’ve only just discovered this website and am stunned to discover my young self in a couple of these pictures. In picture #1, I am third from the right in the front row (#39) and in picture #3 I am sixth from the left (#17) with a cymbal held in front of my face. From the look of me, these two pictures must have been taken around 1957’ish. I’m pretty sure that #20 in picture #3 and #33 in picture #1 is my then best friend Alan Turbard. Thank you so much for reviving these memories.

  • Hi Nina, I remember Charlie Llewellyn from Markhams Chase, I think he had only one good arm, the other a prosthetic? Have been trying to think of his name for a while and you have jogged the cells.

    Editor: I have altered the page to allow the names to be added. I hope I have got them correct.

  • Teddy Llewellyn is No. 16. not No. 3.

    Editor: Thanks Nina, I will see if we can improve on this photograph

  • I think the teacher is Miss Wheatcroft. She is also in the photo in the article “Markhams Chase Teachers 1956” where Ann Rugg has also named her as Miss Wheatcroft.

  • Hi David. In the first photo I recognise the twins Gladys and Teddy Llewellyn. Gladys is fourth from left in the front row. Her brother Teddy is in the row behind her just to her left. They lived in Devonshire Road not far from me. They had an older brother called Charley and another called Freddy who was the same age as me and in my class.

  • Hi David, I recognise your wife Daphne Oughton and right behind her is my sister Jill
