Ponder Family Photos

John Ponder was baptised in 1811 at Newton Church Suffolk. He married Jemima Ling, and their oldest son James was born in 1838. James married Eliza Day in 1861 and had a daughter, Catherine, in Suffolk, before moving to the east end of London and becoming a drayman with Charringtons' brewery. He had three more children, Arthur, Harry, and Eliza, but Catherine stayed in Suffolk being cared for by her mother's uncle.  James had three houses built in Bexleyheath, one for himself and his unmarried daughter Eliza, and the other two for his sons and their families. Harry and his wife Lizzie emigrated to New Zealand.  Arthur married Hannah Flegg, and they had their family of five children at Oaklands Road, the youngest of whom, Harry died when he was seven. Arthur worked as a buyer for W.H.Smith. When they retired they moved to Lancing, Sussex. Arthur died in 1947, and Hannah in 1958.
