    • PR entry for bapt shows dob so it is clearly the right Minnie Ann. Parents shown as George Charles and Mary - the Charles made me 1st think it was a niece. Abode 26 Avenue Road, father's occupation shown as gardener (no mention that he was dead); by H F Nixon. 
      I don't know why Minnie was not baptised as a baby, some of her siblings were at least, nor what led her to be baptised aged 13. This being around the age children were often confirmed, I wondered if it was deciding she wanted to be confirmed that led to her realising she wasn't baptised. However, looking more closely at the baptism register, I see that the other 2 people baptised the same day (a Wednesday) were aged 17 and 19, and on the following twelve days there were 5 more baptisms, of 3 young women aged 17, 23 and 31 and then two young men aged 18 and 27. The earlier and later baptisms on the same 2 page spread are all of babies, so this doesn't generally seem to have been the norm, and the following and previous pages also show a vast majority of baptisms being infants, with a few children aged around 10 and just one adult. I suspect that Minnie Ann was baptised as a result of a mission, still possibly in preparation for confirmation.

    In this cemetery burials were only made one person deep. Common practice was to have one free grave (on which no stone was allowed), then buy the adjacent plot (stones were allowed on bought plots), and put a stone centrally! Rather than a tall central stone the family put a wide low stone and surround on the whole area.

      Minnie's father's cousin also married a Longland - Richard Longland. I thought at first that maybe Minnie had married their son, i.e. her second cousin, but found that there was a connection but Timothy and Minnie were not already related: Timothy was the son of Richard's 1st cousin, another Timothy.

    • My great grandmother was married first to Timothy Longland. My understanding is that he was a close friend of my great grandfather, who lodged with them. When dying TL asked JBH to take care of his wife (pregnant when he died). After TL died JBH did the respectable thing and moved out, waited until the year of mourning was up, and then married TL's widow - what better way of taking care of her?! Sadly in the intervening year or so between being widowed (aged 19) and remarrying my great grandmother had given birth to her second child, lost it and then a few months later her first born had also died, aged 2½.
      She must have been in need of comfort! Hopefully too the birth of a child who survived, my grandmother, some 8½ months after her second marriage brought her comfort.

      I have a copy of a letter my great grandfather wrote to his father after my grandmother got engaged complaining about the way his father was treating her - referring to it being like the way he had been treated (something that was news, but not a total surprise, to the family when we came across this after my grandfather's death). Not a total surprise due to my great grandmother's family history (17 years before the marriage my great grandmother's uncle had died in goal. He had been there at the time of both the 1871 and 1881 censuse, with another uncle and his family in the workhouse at the earlier date. At the same time, their mother had been in and out of the lunatic asylum and continued to be until her death in 1916. And had knowledge of an ancestor's brother in the C18th being a vicious smuggler survived?)
      Clearly, though, my great grandfather had not been disowned in the way my grandmother was, as before her first birthday my grandmother along with both her parents and grandparents had moved from Brentford to Stoke Fleming, where they contined to live close to each other for some years, my great grandmother working in her father-in-law's shop / tea rooms.

      The marr cert says "The Parish Church" - in Brentford district, no indication of which, so I assumed Brentford.  But  Golden Wedd newspaper article says St Mary's, Ealing (which is in B. district) (Vicar was W. (C/E.) Oliver)

    This article, written in 1949, seems to have copied information from the earlier Tuck Shop article of 1936 without the appropriate updates, e.g. it refers to the Prince of Wales we "knew today[sic]" as Edward VIII, but refers to Prince Albert simply as such! It also refers to one granddaughter although their second was born well before 1949.

    My great grandparents with their 1st 2 children - my grandmother and my great aunt. The latter is in the pram at the back - with her mother ready to push it; my great grandfather is in sitting in front of his wife and my grandmother is to the left of him.
    Since my great aunt was born late 1903 I think this must have been in 1904 and I am assuming it is Blackpool Sands (the trees etc. behind the beach are consistent with this).
    I don't know if it was a formal or informal event, or who anyone…

    I believe the baby in the middle of the photo is my great uncle "Bert" (James Bartlett Hambling, b 1906) and that the young girl in front of him is my great aunt Ivy. Certainly the baby is on the lap of my great grandmother (Minnie nee Court), while the man to the right (her left) is my great grandfather (James Bartlett Hambling, b 1876). My grandmother, Florence Hambling, is to his right, slighly in front of him.

    Re location:
    Probably in Stoke Fleming, else Dartmouth - I'm a bit confused about when they lived in Stoke Fleming, when in Dartmouth, and in any case it could have been taken at the children's grandparents in Stoke Fleming.

    Easter Day fell on 16 April in 1922.
    By 1922 Bert and Minnie had moved to Surrey, but their daughter Flo was still living in Stoke Fleming, with her grandparents, and working in the Tuck Shop, so presumably she was enjoying a holiday with them when this photo was taken.
