George William was the first of ten children born to Thomas Robert and Alice née MOORHOUSE. The Shared Tree has an extra daughter, Julia, for whom there isn’t a birth registration to be found. She features in the 1911 census though.

There were no more children born after Louis. Thomas Robert must have had a senior moment because in 1921 he named the daughter that arrived between his namesake son and Paul “Lillian”. (In most sources she is “Lilian”.)

Just mentioned Paul married Annie Elizabeth COWLING in September 1926. I expect Paul’s oldest brother George William may have been present at the ceremony  – and perhaps he appears in the wedding photograph below (behind the bride maybe).

I walked along West Road this morning to photograph the house where Jane Elizabeth lived towards the end of her life (source EYFHS Filey St Oswald’s MI Survey).

Jane’s house, No.93, is open to the street.

In researching George [GDDG-5NS] and Jane I collected information that may be helpful to Shared Tree contributors. I will add some sources to the Collaboration tabs of several individuals tomorrow.

The pavements were icy in places this morning. On this day in 2018 and 2019 “frost flowers” bloomed in Crescent Gardens.

And the Bride Wore…

…a charming gown of cream satin charmeuse, with paniers arranged with beautiful old lace and pearl embroidery, and real orange blossom. She also wore a soft tulle veil over a wreath of heather and orange blossoms, and carried a bouquet of white heather, lilies of the valley, and white carnations. Her only ornament was a rope of pearls. The bridesmaids were attired in gowns of saxe-blue crepe-de-chine, with bodice and paniers in chiffon to match. The bodices were prettily trimmed with pointed cream lace and bows of black tulle. Their hats were of black velvet with blue Lancer plumes, and they carried bouquets of blue love-in-the-mist, and wore brooches of peridots and pearls, the gifts of the bridegroom.

It is a long time since I read a “County Magazine” but I’d be surprised if this sort of reporting is no longer offered to a certain class of readership.

During the afternoon Mr. and Mrs. Rowe left in a motor car for York en route for Devonshire, where the honeymoon is to be spent. They were the recipients of numerous and valuable presents.

Almost three years after this happy day, Claude the bridegroom had become Captain Rowe, serving with 14 and 17 RFC squadrons in Abbassia, Egypt. He survived the First World War and died about six months before the Second began.

He is now hitched to Marjorie on FST. She outlived her husband by almost 40 years.
