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."

Mesopotamia from the Autumn of 1914 to the end of August 1921 and whose graves are not known. The memorial was designed by

Edward Warren and unveiled by Sir Gilbert Clayton on the 27th March 1929.

 

Until 1997 the Basra Memorial was located on the main quay of the naval dockyard at Maqil, on the west bank of the Shatt-al-Arab, about 8

kilometres north of Basra. Because of the sensitivity of the site, the Memorial was moved by presidential decree. The move, carried out by

the authorities in Iraq, involved a considerable amount of manpower, transport costs and sheer engineering on their part, and the Memorial

has been re-erected in its entirety. The Basra Memorial is now located 32 kilometres along the road to Nasiriyah, in the middle of what was

a major battleground during the first Gulf War. Casualties are listed under the regiment they served with in rank order. The Panel Numbers

quoted refer to the initial panel dedicated to the Regiment. If a further panel is quoted, this refers to the Prisoners of War panels.) (Last
