  1. 9 Norham Avenue may not be the actual house, even though the address is right. It looks like a 1930s house, and could be a rebuild. Did you get the impression it was Victorian, with maybe the frontage altered?

  2. Hi Judith,
    I have just picked this site from the internet and wondered if you are interested to know that Julia Duncan is my husbands grandmother and I agree with the other people who responded about those pictures, those houses are too modern for the era who this family were alive. I have lots of information of the Mansel family and can link via a female side of the family back to King Edward 1st,2nd and 3rd and maybe William the conquerer. What I am really stuck on is George Duncan’s father, James born in Scotland who is suposed to be related to Admiral Duncan of Campertown acording to my husbands late father. Any member of the extended family who could help would be great. I have the wedding certificate of George Duncan and Ada Selina Young with James on the certificate stating his occupation as ‘A Gentleman’. I also have some information on the Young side of the family. If anyone wants any more information contact me on my e-mail and I will see if I can help.
