The Martin's of Hall Farm Road Benfleet
The marriage of their daughter Gladys in 1950
The Martins lived in Hall Farm Road and owned an orchard, which was large enough to require pickers to come down from London.
They had a Cycle shop called “City Store” on the corner of Brook Road and the High Road; Part of a chain of shops with the HQ in Stratford called “Martin Mart.”
Pat Archer’s (Nee Higgins) mother worked for Gladys’s mother. Pat and one of her sister helped at the wedding.
