My mother, Lilian Beatrice Ethel Gough (nee Rush), was born in 1919 at the Stack Rock, Allen Road, Stoke Newington. pub.
It was owned by my grandmother, Lilian Maud Rush (nee Sayers), who I recall well and fondly from my & her days at “The Old Ship”, Aveley Essex; during and after WW II. In 1928 my grandparents took the “Cowley Arms” pub, at 483 High Road, Leytonstone where I was born in 1934. Here my Dad, Peter Francis Gough got his first job after emigrating from Drogheda, Ireland. He was employed as barman by my grandparents, Lilian & Arthur Rush and met their daughter, Lilian Beatrice Rush, my Mother. They them moved on to the New Mill, Romford from about 1937; before taking on the Old Ship at Aveley at the beginning of the war. *
