A Chance Connection


This morning’s sun was a glory so I carried on walking south to Reighton. Only a few hours have passed since I happened upon this stone but I can’t remember exactly where I saw it! Near the track up to The Bay, maybe. The date puzzled me. I have passed this way several times recently and not noticed the stone. Perhaps it was buried in the sand for over a year and the last storm scoured it out.

The lovingly remembered parents are not on FamilySearch, and as they were both born less than a hundred years ago I will leave it to the family to put them on the World Tree. Margaret’s mother was a CAMMISH, the second most populous family in Filey Genealogy and Connections so you can check out her pedigree here.

I photographed Mary Margaret’s headstone last summer.  ‘Dick’ LOVITT was a Hunts Cyclist who settled in Filey and started the fish shop in Mitford Street.
