Burned to death, Stoke Newington


Date taken: 22 January 2008
Location:
St Mary (Old Church), Stoke Newington


The most remarkable tomb in the church-yard is that of Alderman Picket’s family. It was erected in memory of his father Mr. William Picket, 1745; and Anne his mother, 1750. It commemorates also the melancholy and untimely fate of the Alderman’s daughter Elizabeth, who died Dec. 11, 1781, “in consequence of her cloaths taking fire the preceding evening.” The inscription adds, “Reader, if ever you should witness such an afflicting scene, recollect, that the only method to extinguish the flame is to stifle it by an immediate covering.”

Hi I am writing from Margaret River in Australia. I am trying to put together some photos of my mum’s past for her 90th birthday in a few weeks. She was born in Bouverie Rd and worked for the Air Ministry during the war. Is there any chance you could send me a couple of photos of buildings that might have been around when she lived there? It would give her a big thrill to see them as she says these were the happiest years of her life.

Sure - I could do that for you - it’s only 10 minutes away. Do you know which number Bouverie Road she lived at?

She was born at No. 7 Bouverie Rd. Thanks so much.
