Correspondence from Michael Head in March 2003 states:

"I am busy researching H. A Covington & Son at the moment, having spent Saturday at the Guildhall Library and the Family Records Office. I am interested in

Covington genealogy in order to establish the origins of the company.

My major interest is the activities of the company and its sailing barges. My Grandfather was skipper of the Covington barges Pickwick and Sam Weller.

Whilst my Father obtained his lighterman's licence from The Company of Watermen and Lightermen, after serving an apprenticeship with Covingtons. I would

very much like to write something on Covingtons and that would be quite a challenge. Although they ceased trading only fifty years ago no one seems to know

much about them. I have been in contact with The Society for Sailing Barge Research and they have provided me with a Covington fleet list. However, they

seem to know very little else.

I am going to apply for the death certificates of Henry and Harry Covington, to get the exact dates of their deaths. I will then check the local newspapers for their

obituaries. Harry died in 1936 and The Times of April 30th, of that year recorded that he left 176,000. Proving for all time the adage "where there's muck

there's brass". I will also get copies of their wills. This could be interesting as the Covington fleet was sold shortly after Harry's death. Their better barges going

to The London and Rochester Trading Company. My Father always told me that Covingtons activities were taken over by William Cory the coal, rubbish

disposal and lighterage company. This is something else that will have to be checked.

I have the Covington family living at 19 Streatham High Road in 1901. They appear to be well set up with servants and a cook living in. Another citizen of

Streatham at that time was Stenton Covington, who was a frequent contributor to The Times letters page. Stenton had property in the Fowey area of

Cornwall, which I believe he left to the nation on his death. I have no connection as yet with Henry's family."
