Francis Edward Horton (1902 - 1976)

Born in 1902, Francis Edward Horton, known as Frank, lived at 119 Heath Street in Hampstead throughout his childhood and later moved to nearby 35 High Street. His father, William Phelps Horton, was a master builder and had a successful building and decorating business in Hampstead.

Horton's grandson, Michael Snow, remembers him as 'a very kind, gentle man [who] loved Hampstead' and seemed to know everything there was to know about the area.
