E. Leslie Badham (1873-1944)

From Historical Hastings

Edward Leslie Badham was a local artist of some repute. Born in Clapham, Surrey with six siblings, he married Rebecca Gillett in 1905, and had a daughter, Dorothy. Moving first to Fordwich in Kent by 1905[1], then to Hastings by 1911 at which time he was living at 3 St Matthews Drive[2], he was known to have taught art locally. He was unfortunately killed in an air raid which hit his house at 22 Priory Road on the 12th of March 1944, also killing Dorothy May Badham, his only child.[3].
