    Notes 
    • Edward used to ride a horse and cart up and down old Charlton Lane, Dover going to and from his smallholding and his brothers and sons helped him on the land.

      Apparently some of the Wests were in Dover Police and fought in the first world war. They also helped build the railway tunnel under Shakespeare cliffs from Dover towards Folkestone and apparently attempted/ helped with the first Victorian attempt at a channel tunnel!!!

      Edward apparently favoured paying for labour on his small holding as they worked harder than his family did on the land!

  • Notes 
    • Edward used to grow fruit and veg in the Pineham/Guston area of Dover and had a Green Grocers shop in Peter Street, Dover around 1900. He used to ride a horse and cart up and down old Charlton Lane, Dover going to and from his smallholding. His business failed as he was apparently too generous to customers and they failed to pay for produce!
