Edith Emma MOORE was born at 33 Mitford Street, Filey. She married farmer Herbert PRODHAM in 1924 and they brought two girls into the world at Newbiggin. Edith’s life was taken by accident.

A stone in Filey churchyard remembers the family.

Three years after marrying Ellen (or Eleanor) CLARK of Osgodby, George CHEW was enumerated at The Gate House, his father’s farm in (or near) Scarborough. Ellen and year-old James were with him. Hints for the family dry up on Find my Past after this – and my time runs out – but it seems likely that George died in 1858, leaving Ellen to raise their children and run a small farm of about forty acres.

Shortly after the Great War began, Albert Walter HALL arrived in Filey with the ‘Gaspipe Cavalry’ – the Huntingdonshire Cyclists Battalion. He formed an attachment with a local girl and married her in November 1915. The Cyclists were disbanded the following year and the men were sent to various units around the country. Albert went to France with the 1st/77th Warwickshire Regiment and died on what would later become Armistice Day from wounds received in combat. He is buried at Martinpuich. Lilian Eleanor [G334-2MD] married soldier Walter George KEEBLE when the war was over.
