Hi James, photo has been uploaded. Are you able to identify all three ladies in the photo? Any extra information would be appreciated. Andrew Flanagan.
Just found this page, my mum lived with Miss Strugnell (or Auntie as we called her) for years when young. We grew you with her as extra gran. I can’t see photo on mobile, b how do I view?
Regards, James Blair
Tovey, the cordwainer also had a shop in Longparish,where I believe he lived. He was a liberal Longparish Parish councillor who caused a riot in Longparish because of his objection to the boar war.
I am in a pushchair and my sister is in the silver cat costume and we lived in Gavel Barn, the house pictured, at the time. We do have family photos somewhere. Jo
Does anyone have any memories or photos of this event or a photo of themselves with their Jubilee crown?
Hello Andrew. Congratulations on the launch of your new website. A really professional piece of work. I note on the photo of my father and his mother and his brothers outside of Toll Cottage, their birthplace, that you mention James. The four surviving brothers were Harold, Maurice, Roy and Lionel. All but Lionel were christened in Wherwell Church on the 16th April 1916. Their brother James died aged eight in 1918. Adela Louisa died at birth in Toll Cottage. When Walt Prince of Chilbolton died he left his daughter Joy, a bible with a sketch of their family tree on the inside cover and I used this to start my family tree. We were also related to Fred and Queenie Eastman. Dennis and Joy Dewey (nee Prince gave me the link to Downton and if you Google “The Eastmans of Downton” you will find our relationship to Linda Eastman who married a Beatle and George Eastman, founder of Eastman Kodak.
Thank you Webmasters … Ali (Young) Andrew (Flanagan) Julian (Hudson)
