Early CFord Residents

Olaus Magnus Friedrich Erdmann Henrici, born in 1840 in Holstein, now Germany, became a professor of mathematics at Bedford College for Women in 1869 and later professor of applied mathematics and mechanics at University College, London. In 1884 he took up the chair of mechanics and mathematics at the new Central Technical College, later Imperial College. He died in Chandler's Ford on 10th August 1918.

To read more about him see the website below:

(A search of the cemeteries database suggests that he lived at Hiltingbury Lodge, whilst Helen Stobart Henrici lived at Ching Coattage, Valley Road when she died in 1927.)

Where are/were Hiltingbury Lodge and Ching Cottage?
Do you have information about or photos of any other early Chandler's Ford residents?
