I was interested Tosh, and commented previously.... but they go back so far now that I can't think of anything to say!

Thanks though, I enjoy all that social history stuff.

Thanks Fester, I would have died for information like this when I was compiling my family tree.
It is nice to have a little encouragement on these things just to show that people are watching and using the stuff.

Good evening from Northern Cyprus
I am a desendent of the Hooson family. Grocers, chemists etc in Llandudno. In your listings, isn't it Esmor Hooson? The family all lived in Abbey Road.
Best wishes

Your relatives must have lived at what is now Holcombe House.
It has had a number of names, including Wilberforce House.
Best Wishes to you too

Dear Tosh,
My family have lived in Llandudno since the late 1860's.

My 95 year old mother keeps asking us if we know anything about a family/trader called Dunbabin who had a small shop on the other side of the road to the current Marks and Spencer. I can remember the Telefusion TV rental shop at about that site.

We would be grateful for any help you can give.

In the 1922 guide, a W Dunbabin had the Harrington Hotel (71 Mostyn Street) which was opposite where Telefusion (once Brown's) was.

Re Holcombe House
Yes, my great grandparents lived here. I have stayed at the hotel twice over the past couple of years. It has had a few name changes. It was once Bronalt. My grand father Esmor Hooson MPS father of Bill Hooson MPS built a house in Vicarage Rd and named it Bronalt.

I think "Bronallt" is still called that but the street has now been numbered.  It is Vicarage Avenue rather than Vicarage Road.
