Robert lives in Colchester & knew the younger George Wash at the St.Botolphs St. shop. It is still there but has had a variety of uses.
The following three photos are of (Wash?) family in earls Colne but without any firm idea as to who they all are.
Five Wash brothers
The following group of lads was taken at Earls Colne Grammer school
The three old boys are at the back of High St. & some are Wash.
Gamekeeper – old Tom.
He, Robert believes is buried in the church yard but his son Philip is in the Methodist church yard.
The one on the left looks rather familiar (Ed.)
Wash letter frinton Tom
Pictures of Old Tom’s gun show it was an early 19thC. flint lock converted to percussion but left handed.
The story was that Tom had taken the gun from poachers.
