MARCIA ROAD

Postby kiwi » Sun May 28, 2017 8:52 am

Why ‘Marcia’? it was named after the mother of Charles Rolls, founder of the Rolls-Royce cars company, and a pioneering aviator until he was killed in his plane in 1909.The Rolls family owned extensive lands in the area, nearby Hendre Road was named after the Rolls’ family’s home just outside of Monmouth, Wales.
Penry Street, that links Marcia Road and Old Kent Road (used to be called Northampton Street) but, at some point, was named after “an important religious dissident in the time of Elizabeth I who was taken to the gallows – opposite Tesco – where there was also a gibbet to hang up dead people as an example to potential sinners and heretics

London's fifteen-year-old milk-woman - 15-year-old Rose Brown of Marcia Road, has taken the place of a milkman who was called up for the Forces. Every morning at 8 o'clock Rose starts out on her rounds pushing a heavily laden milk barrow. At 2pm she finishes and returns to the dairy to give a hand in the bottling department until 5pm. She volunteered for the job when the milkman was called up and nobody else could be found to take the job, February 8th, 1941. Alvey Street was off Kinglake Street, now ends at Surrey Grove. (2017).

By all accounts there was an Ash’s Dairy on the corner of Dunton Road & Marcia Road at this time.
According to a Marcia Road website reader who knew Rose, she lived in an alley that ran alongside Greyhound Bridge in Dunton Road.
