It was late afternoon when I realised the GRO website was back up. I don’t have much to say about the Anniversary People today.
Lucy Catherine was the seventh of ten children born to Carr DIXON and Mary Ann POOL. She is an older sister of George Frederick (AP 1059 · burial · 22 June) and aunt to Henry Waller Dixon (AP 1016 · death · 15 June). I believe her to be the granddaughter of Ann CARR (AP 346 · marriage · 27 February). Grannie is just “Ann” on the Shared Tree with only one of the nine children she may have had.
George Watkinson GRAY was baptised at Filey St Oswald’s and less than a year later his mother Ellen died in Scarborough. On census night 1911, George and his father were boarding with Thomas HARVATT, a 66-year-old carter, in Colonial Street, Hull. Arthur Gray was working as a porter at Paragon Station and George was at school. In 1919 Alfred married Minnie THOMPSON in Sculcoates. It was probably Minnie’s second marriage because the Gray house in 1921 sheltered nine people. (I don’t have the details.)
FG&C doesn’t offer much information about Robert PRESTON and Martha TRUSHELL. They married at St Oswald’s but neither has birth and death information. Robert’s father Thomas was a mariner, and Denby Chapman Trushell a hairdresser. I couldn’t find Robert on the Shared Tree but Martha is patiently waiting at the altar for him to show up. A waiter at the time of his marriage, Robert worked as a rulleyman Hull in 1901 for an aerated water company. The couple were on their own in Park Street by then but had six children at home twenty years earlier.
See Left Behind in Filey for some information about Gustav Henry BUSCH.
Sarah Ann MAYNARD married William NEWTON in 1851.

In loving memory of SARAH ANN, the beloved wife of WILLIAM NEWTON of Filey, who died 22nd Sep 1887, aged 54 years.
