Filey Sands

Nellie Muriel RAYLOR is the granddaughter of Ann Elizabeth NUTBROWN (AP 1621 · birth · 23 September). Her father William Wetherill RAYLOR [LDYK-16R] hasn’t tied the knot yet on the Shared Tree. William was a market gardener in Hunmanby and must, I think, have been associated with W Raylor and Sons in Filey.

Nellie married Thomas William BURR in Hunmanby in 1934. Tommy was a butcher but his Uncle David Burr had the Riding Stables in South Crescent Road, which was almost next door to the Raylor’s shop. He died in 1980.

Hannah Margaret GOUNDRILL was baptised at Filey St Oswald’s. She didn’t marry but her clothes were ripped off in public once and she wasn’t shy about telling the story.

The death of Dorothy Wilkes née PENNINGTON was registered in the same quarter as the birth of her son, William Pennington WILKES. William’s father Herbert married again in 1916, choosing Mary E. EDMUNDS to be William’s stepmother, (born 1888, Worksop). William, a baker, married Mary MILLER in 1938. FG&C notes her death at St Margaret’s Nursing Home, Filey, in the year 2000.

Northallerton born Emma Louisa ROBINSON was the second wife of Tom GULLEN, platelayer. She is remembered with his first wife Alice CARR on a fallen stone in Filey churchyard.
