Sand 47 · Filey Sands

Annie Maria was the fifth of seven children born to a Lincolnshire couple, William TEMPLE, and Hannah WILKIN. She was born in Filey and baptised at home by a Wesleyan minister. Her father was the foreman at the local gas works in 1861 but ten years later was a provisions dealer in Middle Street, Driffield. A few months later he was dead, killed by the overturning of a steam boiler. His widow continued to run the grocer’s shop, and most of the children had occupations in 1881 and 1891. Anna Maria, given the age of 28 in 1891, was described as “at home”, and she was without employment ten years earlier. Whether or not this indicates ill health, I failed to find her in 1901, married, single or gone to the next world.

John Kenneth COCKERILL was born in York and died twenty-seven years later in the County Hospital. A stone in St Oswald’s churchyard remembers him and his wife, Filey-born Anne Jenkinson ROBINSON. The couple married at St Oswald’s in November 1933.

George Bentley WELBURN’s father Allinson was buried on the 18th of June, having easily reached his biblical span. George didn’t make fifty and died a single man and childless. He had two brothers and two sisters and hope he will be connected to them soon.
