Alice Peddle (née Runham) (1865 – 18 March 1925)

Alice was the daughter of  bricklayer Henry Runham and Jane (née Edwards). She was baptised on 30 January 1866 and grew up at 100 King Street. She married William Peddle in 1889 and they had two sons: William Alfred Hugh (1890-1919) and Arthur (1895-). William worked as a mail messenger with the Post Office and they lived at 44 Ainsworth Street after marriage (1891). The family later lived at 172 Sturton Street (at least 1901 onwards), where Alice died aged 60 years old.

William Peddle (1865 – 10 March 1932)

William was born in Windsor, Berkshire but little is known of his early life.  In 1871 he was documented as being a visitor to The Hall, Dalham in Suffolk – the cook at the Hall was called Ann Peddle, so he could have been her son, although no records to substantiate this have been found. In 1881 he was living at 15 Trinity Place, King Street with his maiden aunt Eliza Peddle and working as an apprentice plasterer. He started working for the Post Office in May 1887 and by 1911 had been appointed ‘Assistant Inspector of Boy Messengers’.  After he was widowed he lived at 38 Beche Road with son Arthur and daughter in law Maggie.  William died at the Grove Nursing Home, Chesterton Road.
