Charles Rupert Clay and his wife Florence May lived at 8 Moreton Avenue from about 1910/11 until his death in 1956, Florence died the previous year. He was born in Manchester and his Father Charles was a hat trimming Merchant, Charles joined his Father in the business until his death in 1906. Charles Rupert is a distant relative of mine. I would love to know when they moved there. They got married in 1909 so must have moved there after that.

ed. They are listed in Kelly's Directories from 1910 to the the 1950s.

Charles Rupert Clay moved to 8 Moreton Avenue in 1908 per the title deeds. He ran a large millinery in Luton. No mention of Florence in the title deeds. He leased 8 Moreton Avenue for 3 years and then purchased it from the builders in 1911.
