My ancestors (Dady) lived in Myrtle Cottage, Fishers Lane in 1900 or so. Do you have any information? Was it associated with a manor house?

The most expensive showbiz ticket I ever bought
I don’t know about you but at the time of writing this I am beginning to wilt with the heat but am grateful we are enjoying a good summer. However, this week I have decided to take us back to a cooler December 1994, when I attended a wonderful showbiz event at the Dominion Theatre in London.

Boston Manor

Boston Manor is a London Underground station serving the Boston Manor area between Brentford and Hanwell in west London.

Boston Manor station was opened by the District Railway (DR), on 1 May 1883 on a line to Hounslow Town (located on Hounslow High Street but now closed). The station was originally named Boston Road. The signs on the platforms gave the name as Boston Manor for Hanwell.

Electrification of the DR’s tracks took place between 1903 and 1905 with electric trains replacing steam trains on the Hounslow branch from 13 June 1905. The station was given its current name on 11 December 1911.

Between 1932 and 1934 the station was rebuilt to replace the 1883 station building.

The new station was designed by Stanley Heaps in the modern European style used elsewhere on the Piccadilly line by Charles Holden. The design uses brick, reinforced concrete and glass. Occupying a narrow site because of the approach to the adjoining depot, the station was built out over the tracks. The distinctive tower feature, with an illuminated leading edge and roundel rises high above the low structure and helps identify the station from a distance, was strongly influenced by contemporary Dutch and German architecture and was intended to create a landmark building amid an area of low-rise suburban housing.

Piccadilly line services, which had been running as far as Northfields since January 1933 were extended to run to Hounslow West on 13 March 1933 when the partially completed Boston Manor station was opened to passengers. Building works were completed on 25 March 1934.

District line services were withdrawn on 9 October 1964.

On 9 January 2013, the station appeared on a British postage stamp as part of a set commemorating the 150th anniversary of the first London underground train journey. The stamp’s caption read "Boston Manor Art Deco Station".

John Rocque Map of Ealing and Acton (1762)
John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map covers an area from Greenford in the northwest to Hammersmith in the southeast.
