Arthur J Thurlow born 1857
Coniston, Amersham Hill
My father lived within the town
- Picture from the SWOP
number BFP : 06421
And dealt in corn for miles around,
He prospered well, the trade was good,
So it became my livelihood.
My wife, my girls, my only son,
Then moved along to 'Coniston'
Which marks our progress up the hill,
But we've a way to climb yet still.
Arthur Thurlow was the son of James Thurlow of Bridge Mill.
nephew, Eric, married Audrey Clarke of Castle Hill House).
Arthur's only son, Arthur Geoffrey, had gone to university but was unlikley to have taken over the business because a more prosperous career no doubt beckoned.
Sadly he was killed in the First World War in 1915.
