It is Hallow's Eve today, I don't like celebrating Halloween; something to do with being British and Halloween being a predominantly American celebration. So instead I remember some of the family history.
Hunting through the family photo's the other evening I came across what I thought were old (some very old) family photo's which Zeltus hasn't yet seen.
The picture on the left is the youngest of the old one's and is of my Uncles and Aunt's along with my Dad. The four children of Jesse who was our Grandfather and Dorothy Lovesey; from left to right are Dave, Eric (Dad), Lil and Sheila.
Lil, was able to give me a bit more informaiton about the other two photo's here. Picture 1 is of Jesse's wedding to Dorothy Lovesey. The Gentleman on the far left is William (Jesse's Dad). The two bridesmaid's in front are Dorothy's sisters.
They got married on the 19th May 1928 and Grandad served in the second world war, along with his brother Charlie who was killed and to this day we still haven't found out where.
The story doesn't quite end there as I had another picture in the file which shows, William with his father-in-law Joseph Lovesey.
A real character, Joseph who was married to Frances lived in Great Gransden; Cambridgeshire. Their house was near by the village pub and church and it was known on more than one occasion for Joseph to sneak off to the pub when he told Frances that he was off to the Church. However Frances knew where he was and used to come into the pub and tell him off.
The young girl in the middle of the photo standing up is Lil, my Aunt and the one who provided me with this information.
