I’m looking for my father, he’s of St Lucian heritage from what i’ve found out through my DNA. His name was Joe - but not sure if this was a nickname. He lived at 6a Sudbury Court 172 Daubeney Road around 1989/ 1990, my mother lost contact due to the tower block being sold and refurbished. It was 1 of 4 buildings that stood, the other 3 were demolished (Norbury Court, Bakewell Court, Ambergate Court). I’ve been searching for years now with no luck, if anyone knows anyone who lived in this building during this time, who might know have any information, id be very grateful! Or if anyone has any advice on what I can do next, I've tried contacting hackney council but due to data laws, they won't help me.

Welcome to Genes and the boards.

It is extremely unlikely that anyone with any connection to the buildings would spot this post.

Without Joe’s surname no one will be able to help you. Ploughing through the Electoral Rolls for the address seems the only way of finding his surname. The Electoral Rolls are usually available at Local Studies centres or the main Library. A personal visit would be needed.
