When I was a young 15 year old I learned the trade of bricklaying in Stanstead Mountfitchet from one Tom Hutley. His actual name was Walter but everybody called him Tom. This was in the late fifties. He was one of natures finest and I had a great deal of time for him.. Many years later in current timesI started to trace my family history. Mine is an old Essex family too from around Epping way. Lo and behold I discovered that an ancestor of mine , (Elizabeth Champness) was married some generations ago to a John Hutley. Thus I realized all too late that Tom and I were in fact probably related in some way across the generations, although I have never been able to find the link.
