H. W. Elliott - High Street, Handcross

In many of the photographs of No. 1, Oakley Cottages you can spot a sign board which states “H. W. Elliott, Watch & Clock Maker, Jeweller”.
Standing outside his house is Mr Elliott sporting a very elegant beard.

This is my great great grandfather, his full name was Henry William Elliott.
I am not sure if any of his children took on the trade. My great grandfather was a house painter, as was my grandfather, but he was always playing with watches and clocks so the inclination definitely stayed in the family at least!

Does anyone know if Henry was living in this cottage in 1901?

Do you have more photos of No. 1 Oakley Cottages by any chance?

More glimpses of Oakley Cottages can be found by clicking on "Groups" and selecting "Roads - Handcross - High Street (South)". It seems that pictures 132, 134, 135, and 138 are the best ones. Mr Elliott's sign can be seen quite clearly. I have no more to upload.
