Calladines shop, Heanor

Journal by Dave Calladine

Whilst looking into the Calladine Family of Heanor, I had some correspondance with a Paul Calladine in early 2004.

He was the son of Harold Calladine who was born in 1924 and ran the fruit and veg shop in Heanor.

His father was Thomas Calladine born 1884 and Thomas had three wives
Thomas's first wife was Lilian Simms who he married in 1907,
His second wife (Harolds mother) was Lucy Buxton born in 1884, however, he also married his 3 wife Elizabeth Lygo Buxton in 1954.
Paul rememberd that Harold had a half sister - Mary who married Eric West. about 1927. In June 1999, Eric was living at 79 St Wilfrid's Road, West Hallam, Derbyshire, before moving to a retirement home.

Pauls grandfather (Thomass father), was a chap called George Calladine - born in 1856 and had a number of brothers and sisters.

George married Sarah Ann Elliott and in 1886 George died at the tender age of only 30 years.
Thomas had two siblings,
George J Calladine, born 1877 and
Mary Calladine born 1879.

Going throught the local history forum at Heanor, I have noticed that there is a post annoucing that Thomas Calladine first had a sweet shop on Ray Street. From there he took on a fruit and vegetable shop on Market Street somewhere in the vacinity of the TSB Bank and Pipers the Bakers. He then moved his fruit and veg shop to number 3 Market Street, Heanor.

Of course the expert on this would be Ann A, as it was her grandfather (Thomas Calladine). When Thomas retired, Harold Calladine must have run the shop. Ann I think recalled that he ran a shop with his sister, Mary until the mid 60s.

only a coincidence but Henry Calladine eldest daughter Ada ran a fruit and veg shop in Nottingham, and her grand children & grt grandchildren continue to do so to this day.
George 1855/6 would of been Henry's uncle.

Well if it is coincidence that you want lol, my grandfather Henry Arthur Calladine ran a Exotic Fruit and Vegtable shop, at 75 Collick Lane Sneinton Nottingham just before and during the war, which reduced the stock to tins ... and My Grandmother to shop assistant, as he re-joined the RAF as a machine Gun instructor. After the war he had made some profit growing unusual fruit and veg varieties on a small plot of land near to Newark, where he was stationed in the war - and a shady deal to get loads of nissian hut windows to construct dodgy glass houses with.

His father had run a coal merchants in nearby St Anns.
