Dave Hilson: Transcript of Interviews
David Hilson was born in Turvey in 1932. His mother’s maiden name was Wooding, a very common name in Turvey throughout the 19th century. Dave remembers that when he was growing up in Ladybridge Terrace, he lived next door to Woodings on either side, making three in a row with his grandmother, who lived with him! His grandmother kept a laundry with three other ladies on Ladybridge Terrace, using the Tandy’s Close field (before there were houses) to dry the laundry. Dave says he was put in the bath after the sheets for a wash every Monday.
