John was my great great grandfather and father of Elizabeth Valder.
He was born to Daniel and Ann in Shadwell, East London in 1846.
He was baptised on the Feast Day of St Simon and St Jude 1855 at St George in the East.
Both of his parents had died by the time he married Louisa Vousden on 3rd July 1871 at St Paul, Stratford, Essex.
John and Louisa had nine children of which my great grandmother, Elizabeth, was the third.
John's occupation was miller and later stoker at a brewery.
The family were still living in the East End of London at the time of the 1891 census but had moved to 45 Wanstead Park Road, Ilford, Essex by 1901.
John died in 1934 at the age of 87 and was buried at St Mary the Virgin, Ilford on 17th March.
