Finborough Road derives its name from the country seat in Suffolk of the local landowning Pettiward family.

Finborough Road was built as part of the Redcliffe Estate by builders William Corbett and Alexander McClymont.

While the layout of local roads dated from 1864, it took until 1882 for the approximately 82 acres of the Redcliffe Estate to be completed. The majority of the estate was constructed by Corbett and McClymont who, in 1878, were declared bankrupt.

Vickers Road
The road ’Vickers Road’ is numbered rather differently to other roads in the area as it was originally built as housing for the "Vickers" arms factory in the late 1800’s and early 1900s. Most of the houses still retain the original 19th century tiling and drainage outside of the front doors.

Frank Whipple Place, E14
Frank was my great-uncle, I’d often be ’babysat’ by Peggy while Nan and Dad went to the pub. Peggy was a marvel, so full of life. My Dad and Frank didn’t agree on most politics but everyone in the family is proud of him. A genuinely nice, knowledgable bloke. One of a kind.

My 2 x great grandparents and his family lived here according to the 1841 census. They were Dutch Ashkenazi Jews born in Amsterdam at the beginning of the 19th century but all their children were born in Spitalfields.
