2 JOHN PIKE John Pike is my grandfather x 4 I believe he was born in Londonderry, Ireland. My information is sourced via the census records and any other records I have been able to find. My name is Raymond and my mother was Margaret Pike born in 1911, she did not marry and registered my birth as Raymond Pike. I have since found out that in 1964 she amended my birth certificate and put my fathers name as Frederick Harold Foreman. This is where the whole thing becomes confusing because my dads name wasn’t Harold it was Alfred, but I have no intentions of going down that track. From the census records it seems that nearly all generations stayed around the Leicester area and were either employed in the hosiery or shoe factories. I left the UK in 1958 for Australia aboard the liner The Fairsky, which is where I met Patricia, she was 18 at the time. I remember the day I left as if it were yesterday. I had one suitcase. It was November and it was foggy and pissing down. I trudged to the bus stop at New Parks, Got off the bus in Charles street, still pissing down. Made my way to cental station and got the train to Southampton. I was so wet had to go to the toilet and change my clothes. Even me fags got wet. The ship was The Fairsky, but it had a sad ending. Sad ending to a fine lady. Leicester was at one time almost the centre of the universe regarding the shoe and hosiery industry. Now almost all have disappeared. Corha's was just one of the many victims. Cherub for children was another victim of cheap imports. Corha's Cherub Underlined words in white are interesting links. Well! To me they are. And underlined words beneath a picture will take you to a bigger version Leicester markets around the 1930’s The oldest covered market in Europe I need your old pictures and suggestions
