Coronation Street Past And Present Wiki


Harry Hewitt was a character in Coronation Street from Episode 2 (14 Dec 1960) to Ep 702 - 6 Sep 1967. He was the father of Lucille Hewitt and Christopher Hewitt. He was played by Ivan Beavis.



Harry Hewitt was born on the 24th February 1921 in Weatherfield to Thomas Hewitt and Mary Hewitt. He was the second of 3 children. Harry married Elizabeth and they had a daughter Lucille Hewitt in 1949.


Harry was a bus conductor and a great friend of Len Fairclough. In 1961 he met and married Irish Concepta Riley. They had a son Christopher Hewitt in August 1962. In August 1964, the Hewitt's moved to Ireland.


In September 1976, 9 years after Harry's death, Stan Ogden mentioned Harry Hewitt to Fred Gee and how people say he kept greyhounds. In 1964, Stan and his family moved into Coronation Street a few weeks before the Hewitts left for Ireland, so he may have met him.
