Water 61 · Martin’s Ravine

Sarah Elizabeth POWLEY was caught by just one census – and she was not with her family in 1881 but spending census night in Church Street with her “aunt” Sarah MOODY, a fisherman’s wife aged 18. I think this was Sarah Elizabeth WISEMAN, a first cousin once removed rather than an aunt. Our birthday girl’s death at sixteen was not reported in any newspapers I have been able to access.

Lucy Mabel Beatrix PYM had a twin brother and both survived to adulthood and married.

Adam HILL was born in a small village in County Antrim but made his way to Yorkshire to marry Edith Sophia BARWICK in Filey St Oswald’s church. Adam set up his medical practice in Salford, Lancashire, and had three daughters with Edith. In 1939, two were working as bank clerks and the third, Eileen was a masseuse. All three married after The Register was taken.

Mary AVERY’s husband achieved his biblical span but she lived on for almost a quarter of a century. They are both remembered in Filey churchyard but seem to have dodged the attention of the East Yorkshire Family History Society Survey of 2014. It is a substantial stone but it has evaded my camera too – except for a placeholder shot taken last year which hasn’t recorded the full inscription.
