No longer a complete mystery

  • Hi, my great grand aunt married George Hackshaw in Benfleet in 1919 her name was Ester Stockwell, I am not sure if they had any children.

  • The artist is George William Hackshaw – he was my great uncle. He was known to everyone as Bill Hackshaw (as his father was also called George). The Hackshaws moved to South Benfleet soon after the end of WW1 and (my great-grandparents) lived in a cottage called Brookmede on Brook Road (demolished in the 1970s). 

    Bill had a Shoe Shop on the High Street in the 1920s and lived at the bottom of Vicarage Hill – his sister Edith was a Piano Teacher. Bill died in Benfleet in 1966
