  General Notes:

As I understand it Glengall Road was the family home, but as three of the daughters married three brothers from the Eggleton family who lived at St.James Nursery, Hervey Road, Blackheath, London, SE3. Hugh was a frequent visitor to Blackheath where he died, presumably on a visit.
Although I live in the old Nursery the address has been changed due to the building of a nearby motorway. [DF 2007]
