Research: Mary Ann Capon (nee Marrow)

Today I have decided to share my research on my great great grandmother Mary Ann Capon (nee Marrow). From what I know of her, she must have been a very strong minded and willed woman. This was definitely proven by how long she lived on the earth. I enjoy the stories that I have collected about her, love looking at photographs and learning more about her. I really wish I could have known her, as I have so many questions that may be forever unanswered!

Research: Harold Hunter

My great uncle was called Harold Hunter, but was known by many other names, to many people. I had a lot of time for my uncle Harold, as he was a very funny, caring and genuine man. He was always able to make everyone and anyone laugh, and could easily lighten anybody’s mood if they were feeling down. I miss going to visit him, listening to his stories and laughing at his jokes. He will always be remembered and missed by both family and friends. Read his full story here!

Research: Mark House

Today I have decided to write about my 3x great uncle, Mark House. He had to struggle through life being totally deaf from his birth in 1885, Hampshire. Here’s his story!

Research: Thelma Beacock (nee Baxter)

Today I decided to post about my paternal grandmother Thelma Beacock (nee Baxter). I never had the privilege of meeting my Nana, but I know that she was an amazing woman. I have heard so much about her from a lot of people, that I feel as if I do know her

Research: William Hunter

Today I have decided to share what I know about my great grandfather, William Hunter, who was more commonly known as Bill. I never met him, but I have always thought that I would have gotten on well with him. Luckily I have photographs, facts and stories about him, so I do feel like I know him quite well.

Research: Frederick Allan Beacock

My grandfather Frederick Allan Beacock was such an amazing man with a great sense of humour, despite what he had to deal with throughout his life. He will always have a special place in my heart, as I have always felt very close to him.
