Today I am sharing my research on my 2x great grandmother, Arabella Baxter (nee Bassett). There doesn’t seem to be a lot of information about her, despite passing away in the 50s, and there doesn’t seem to be any photographs of her. It is a mystery to me, but you can read what I do know about her here.
My 4x great grandfather Henry Hunter was born in 1806: a totally different world to what we are used to! Learn more about him here!
Today I have decided to share my research on my great “Auntie Lil”. Her full name was Lilian Alice Looker/Weldon (nee House) and was a very kind lady. Some may say that she had a hard life, but she battled through it and still took the time to bother about herself and others. Read her full story here!
Today I have decided to share my research on my 3x great uncle, Henry Handson Beacock. He was the one of the older brothers of my 2x great Grandfather’s, Frederick Beacock. He was part of the first generation of the Beacock family to be born in Hull, after his father moved over from Lincolnshire in the 1860s. Read his story here!
Today I have decided to share my research on my 4x great grandmother, Jane Gibson (nee Gray/ nee Carnes). She lived in a time where women were thought to be sometimes lesser than men, but she managed to push against these social values with her strong mind. She was the keeper of a dwelling house, and seemed to have earned her own money for herself and family. Read her full story here!
Today I have decided to research my great grandmother Alice Baxter (nee Capon). She passed away 16 years before I was born, meaning that I never got the chance to meet her. Despite this, I have heard a lot about her from my family and I am lucky enough to have photographs of her too. Read her full story here.
George was my 2x great uncle (the brother of my great grandmother). I did not know him, but through my research, I have learnt a lot about him. I have heard many stories and have seen lots of photographs of him. Today I have put all of this together for you all to read! Read his story here!
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!
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!
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!
