Note on Wife: Susannah ALEFOUNDER (1) - shared note

Both Susanna and Joseph are described on their marriage certificate as "of this Parish" [i.e. Shoreditch]

 

Was this the "Aunt Sue" that Nelly Jaques remembered, who was poor and lived in Edmonton?

Note on Wife: Susannah ALEFOUNDER (3)

Hello Graham

 

This is how I fit in to the Alefounder tree :

 

Susannah Alefounder (born 1835 ) married George Gregory (b c1840 ) They had about 10 children, one of whom was Annie Emily (b 1863 ) and she married Thomas Bletcher, a very interesting man.

They had two daughters Annie Florence ( b1891), my grandmother, and Jessie Edith (b 1893)

 

My grandmother, Annie married Henry Day of Boston, Lincs They had two children, Harry (b1916) and Renee, my mother b1921.

 

Renee married (and later was divorced by ) Ronald Beach in 1943 She had two daughters, Hilary (me, b 1944) and Clare (b 1948, d 1972)

 

I married (and subsequently divorced) Michael Waterfield in 1964 We have five children, two sons and three daughters born between 1964 and 1974.

And there are 4 grandchildren, three girls and one boy.

I am now married to William Startin (since 1985)

 

I lived with my grandmother in Weston Super Mare until I was about seven and she used to tell lots of stories about her family and life in the east end of London and had been very devoted to her " grandma Gregory " (Susannah Alefounder ) who lived with them once she was widowed.

I have a couple of photos of Susannah and her daughter Annie and my grandmother (also Annie) and also a series of letters that Susannah wrote to my grandmother during the first world war when she had been sent to live with her in-laws in Lincolnshire when she had her first baby, Harry.

If you would like to see them I could get my son to scan and send them to you when I am next in England in September. (beautiful and vivid writing)

 

We now live in France since we retired five years ago, in the house we bought in the early ninties as a retreat from a rather hectic life in London.

 

With good wishes

Hilary
