Golden Houlding

Brought up as a brother to Silva Carter

By James Nason, with additional information from Jennifer Read and Peter Carter.

Golden Bewers Houlding was born on the 4th August 1907 in Tolleshunt D'arcy to Richard Houlding (born 1851) and Esther Amy Bewers (born in 1868). In 1913, his mother died, so aged 6 years Golden moved to Wickford to live with his uncle Frank, father of Silva. Golden and Silva were brought up as brothers by Frank and Ada Carter (nee Bewers), although Ada died young and most of the 'bringing up' was done by the housekeeper, Sarah Wright, known as Sally.
