....... ORFORD c1963

It was reported 16th July 1937 that Mrs. Ann Colman, late landlady of the Old Oak Inn, where she resided for upward of forty years, had died the previous Saturday, at the house of her son at Cow Cross, London, age 81.
It would appear that the Anne Colman named here in 1845 was her mother, since this Ann was born about 1856.

Miss Hilda Bertha Orford, only daughter of Mr. & Mrs. E. Orford, married Mr. Cecil Charles Gosling on Saturday 16th October 1954.
