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
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 share my research on my 3x great grandfather John Hunter. He was an agricultural labourer from Burton Pidsea in East Yorkshire, England. Not a lot is known about John, but I believe him to have been a very hard working man who had to look after his wife and 10 children. 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!
My great Auntie Sylvia didn’t have a very long life at all, but she was a very special person. I feel very close to her for some reason, although she passed away 44 years before I was born. Here’s her story.
Today I have decided to write about my 3x great grandmother Margaret Beacock (nee Gibson).
My great uncle was called William Cecil Hunter, but was more commonly known as Cec. I have heard many many stories about him and his unmatchable sense of humour, kindness and generosity. He was known and loved by many people. It is such a shame that I never was able to meet him.
My 3x great grandfather was George House. He was born in 1855 Hampshire, England. Read his story here.
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.
