More on the Kimich Watchmakes of Hemel Hempstead

Clocks & Watches
Hemel Hempstead
Following a message from Jenny of the Anglo-German Family History Society I have updated the information on the Kimich family of Hemel Hempstead using newly available information from the British Newspaper Archives and parish register information that has recently appeared on FindMyPast. The most important change is that I have now established is a definite business link between Joseph Kimich, who died in Luton in 1858, and Engelbert Kimich who moved to Hemel Hempstead in 1861. In addition the parish registers have enabled me to tighten up on some of the genealogical information. It now seems that the family move to a house in Marlowes circa 1902 was a temporary move while the shop site on the Broadway was being redeveloped.
The Kimich's shops were in the new (erected c1905) buildings on the left.
