My grandfather was a Ostler bringing horses from the country to London. I understand his father was a stableman. My grandfathers brother became a well known jockey in France and stayed there. My mother only saw him once in the 1930s when he brought his kids to London but they were rather to posh to play with people from Southwark! in 1901 it seems my grandfather was at St Margarets Court - I guess that is off Borough High Street
. My mother was brought up around Blackfriars but a bomb put paid to their accommodation in April 1941. Do you live in the area?
