It was 160 years ago on the 6th of March 1860 that Fanny Isabel Gray first saw the light of day in Cookham Dean, her father William Gray was a butcher with a shop in Marlow and at a later date in Cookham Dean. It was from him that my father became a slaughterman-butcher and not a farmer after his father. Both Fanny and her sister Anne married two Hatch boys George William and Alfred James. My father was christened George William Gray Hatch as he was the only boy, with four sisters, Amy, Florence, Shelia, and Margaret, known as Peggy or Dee!
My Great Aunt Anne was married to Alfred James Hatch an had two boys, William Turner Gray Hatch and Thomas James Hatch (known as Jack of Sheephouse Farm.
You may well ask how I remember my Grandmothers birthday. Well I will celebrate my birthday on the 12th March, and yes I will be 90!
