Thank you very much for featuring our story in last week’s paper. My cousin Sue Cripps and I met at Old Scalby Mills, at the spot where our great great grandparents had taken their family on an outing in the 1880s.
Some more cousins read the article and recognised the original photo as one they had a copy of in an old trunk so we are now in touch with them too.
Maggie and Dave didn’t even know we existed so it’s exciting. We all hope to get together towards the end of October as part of a family reunion and are looking for any other cousins (descendants of Charles Hilton and Catherine née Brady).
