My great Grandparents Charles & Ann Blaker lived in these houses.

I believe they moved into Number 5 called ‘Bickley’ when it was first built. They are shown there in the 1918-1926 voters list and also in the 1915 Kellys directory.

They then moved up the road to number 32 and are shown there on the Voters List from 1927-1949.

It looks like Ann then moved to number 41 Preston Park Avenue from the 1950 & 1952 Voters List.

  • Back in the 1960s and into the 70s my family GP, Dr Freddie Eyton-Jones used to operate a single-handed GP practice out of a large detached house in Preston Park Avenue. He was a real old-school GP and ended every consultation with a jelly baby. Does anyone out there remember him?

  • May be be connected maybe not, but we have just unearthed an old British Rail railway health and safety notice circa early 1960s – it has Redhill Written into the location and states that FMM Eyton-Jones is the contactable / official medical Doctor. We have now placed it on proud display at our Depot at Redhill.

  • Hi Martin. I certainly remember Dr Eyton-Jones in Preston Park Avenue and his jelly babies, even when we were adults!! He was a lovely man and we (my brother was born in 1953) stayed with him from birth until he retired.
