Edmund Jenkinson WATKINSON is a third great-grandson of William (1721-1762), Filey’s first JENKINSON (arguably). His birth and death registrations don’t give him a middle name and when he signed the marriage register in 1903, he appears to be in two minds.

William GIBSON Jr [LR65-VGX] has yet to marry Elsie COLLINS on the Shared Tree. Elsie, widowed, is with her two daughters when the 1939 Register is taken. Blanche is still single at age 30 (and not in a paid occupation) but her younger sister Ella has married Alan Wymont WAYTE. His occupation is given as “Tree Farmer Of Honey Products Late Motor Engineer”.

John JOHNSON was born in Minskip (Great Ouseburn Registration District) and his wife Emma in Muston. They are not related by blood.

Leonard Chettle WISE was a bicycle maker and if memory serves, he had a shop on Murray Street where the San Marco Restaurant is now. I think the photo below shows him at the age of 40 or thereabouts.

Leonard didn’t make it to fifty but his wife Emily (née PARKINSON) continued living at 47 West Avenue until 24 May 1948. They had two children but there is nobody to look after their grave now.
