18 Suffolk Road (formerly 9 Northwick Terrace)
From at least 1851 until after 1871 John Powell lived at 18 Suffolk Road and his trade was listed as a stonemason or builder. By 1881 the principal occupant had changed to Dennis Potter, a glass and china dealer but also sharing the property that year was Martha Axford, a dressmaker. By 1926 this had changed again to Charles Thomas Deane, registrar of marriages.
The house was bomb damaged in WWII and later rebuilt. In 1952 and until at least 1975 both numbers 18 and 20 Suffolk Road belonged to Leckhampton Estates Ltd, Builders and Contractors , who in the later years shared number 18 with the Gloucester Association of Boys’ Clubs
20 Suffolk Road (formerly 10 Northwick Terrace)
In 1851 number 20 Suffolk Road was occupied by Mildred Everill, an annuitant (the beneficiary of an annuity or pension). However by 1871 - and until at least 1891 - Herbert Early, a tailor, lived here.
By 1910 this property was occupied by Charles Robert Iles, a lithographer, and he was succeeded after his death in 1924 by William Young Iles, also a lithographer, and his wife Annie. Tragically, the house was bombed, and totally destroyed, by the German Luftwaffe on 11th December 1940 and Mrs Annie Elizabeth Iles was killed, aged 55. This row of properties was completely rebuilt after the war.
In 1975 W.A.Woof Ltd, presumably having relocated from number 8 Suffolk Road, was listed here as a Sports Outfitters.
