  • Pat , having viewed your link , I was struck by the surname Fison. I have Elizabeth Fison connected to John Durrell (8× Gt Grandparents) back in the late 1600s. As the parcel of land is situated also where the Durrells lived , (approximately) I guess he may well be linked?
    Any news on this would be most welcome.

  • I don’t really know more than is cited in the summary of the gift to the church and the connected reference at If you google the Fison name it comes up with some references which may help but I haven’t seen a Wivenhoe connection (yet!) Other houses on the north side of East Street were demolished and replaced by the current Fish Shop and I have transcribed a number of these deeds.

  • Thank you for confirming that Pat.
    P.s. my earlier comment ” top of those lane” should have read ” Top of Rose Lane”

  • Can you supply details over when these houses were demolished. I was aware of cottages/ tenement demolished at the top of those lane. Fairly sure the ones pictured are still standing.

  • I think you may be right and the houses which were demolished by the early nineteen twenties were on the north side of East St. Three tiny cottages which stood where the church entrance is now sited were definitely demolished by this time. See:
