Calladines shop, Heanor
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 (Thomas’s 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.
