    Simpson's Road
    This is the location of 1-6 Simpson's Road, Poplar, London, some of the property owned by David Caldow Simpson (1811-1899), and is just to the north of Docklands. It would have been inherited by William David Simpson but due to his premature death was taken instead by his brother David Caldow Simpson (b.1860). It was sold by his son John Graydon Simpson to the local council in 1951.

    This is the location of 1-6 Simpson's Road, Poplar, London, just some of the property owned by David Caldow Simpson (1811-1899) and left to his son William David Simpson. London's wealthy Docklands area is just to the south; you can see a Docklands Light Railway train in the background.

    Unfortunately William David Simpson died three years before his father (something his father's will had not allowed for) so his line did not inherit and his share was divided among the other children. This property went to David Caldow Simpson (b.1860), and was sold by his son John Graydon Simpson to the local council in 1951.
