Measure of Man 86 · Coble Landing

High Tide

Thomas PASHBY and Ann Jane McINYTRE have not yet been given any of their twelve children on the Shared Tree. Rachel McIntyre is number seven. In 1902 she married a “telegraph wireman” in Scarborough. William GREEN was born in Manchester but was aboard the Hull trawler Diamond when it was wrecked that year on the coast near Filey. All the crew was rescued and taken to the Foord’s Hotel in Queen Street. Rachel was a cook by occupation and Kath speculates on Filey Genealogy and Connections that this event may have brought the couple together. They had seven children.

In loving memory of a devoted husband and dad, WILLIAM GREEN, died 16th May 1948, aged 68.

Also, his dear wife, RACHEL McINTYRE GREEN, reunited 12th Jan 1955, aged 75.

‘At rest’

In 1851, Adelaide Mary SPOFFORTH was the youngest of seven children at Easthorpe Hall a mile and a half as the crow flies from Castle Howard. Her father was a “proprietor of land”, so you might reasonably expect Adelaide to have been a regular visitor to the Bigger House. I hope she had a happy childhood because, sadly, she died before the year was out.

There are two Shared Tree IDs for Robert SIMPSON. One (MGZS-WNT) takes you to his birth family, headed by Lancelot Simpson and Mary MOSEY. The other shows him with his wife Ann née SIMPSON and three children. The youngest child, John, was born after the beginning of civil registration and he has a record in the GRO Index. His mother’s death was registered in 1839. FG&C has given her six children in her eight years or so of marriage. This seems too many. The Shared Tree gives her three, of whom only John born in 1838 may be the same person in both resources. This couple will take more time to sort out than I have, with “Six a Day” to look at.

George WARCUP was born in Flamborough to William, a fisherman, and Sarah DUKE. George died on the day his father was buried in Flamborough St Oswald’s churchyard. Kath posed the question on FG&C – “did something awful other than the funeral happen that day?” One record I have indicates that George was buried at Flamborough two weeks after he died. The family headstone is poker-faced.

In affectionate remembrance of WILLIAM WARCUP, who departed this life on the 8th of September 1872, aged 62 years.

Also of SARAH his wife, who departed this life on the 14th of August 1866, aged 56 years.

Also of WILLIAM, son of the above, who was drowned on the 26th of January 1865, aged 32 years.

Also of ELIZABETH, daughter of the above, who departed this life on the 14th of May 1854, aged 20 years.

Also of GEORGE, son of the above, who departed this life on the 11th of September 1872, aged 24 years.

‘Them which sleep in Jesus will God

 Bring with Him’ 1 Thess. 4.14.

The death notices of both men in the Bridlington Free Press, 14 September, give nothing away, other than to claim George was 25, not 24.

The St Oswald’s burial register entry doesn’t actually offer a date for George’s interment but gives his age as 25. The previous burial was on the 13th and the next on the 26th of September.

I couldn’t find newspaper reports of the deaths of father or son.

Row 39 | 756 Hunter G614  

In loving memory of ROBERT VAREY HUNTER, who died Sept 8th 1918, aged 63 years.

‘Christ will link the broken chain

When in Heaven we meet again’

Also of his wife MARGARET EDMOND HUNTER, interred at Brampton, who died Oct 16th 1946, aged 89 years.
