61/366 [Ancestry]

Ancestry

Have many more photos to add to this gallery since our trip away last year. Just need to get photos printed up and framed. Probably going to run out of room before I run out of relatives. Love the way my ancestors are with us and watching as we go in and out of the house with our busy lives – so very different to theirs. My maternal great grandfather Stephen, working as a dyer in the mills at eleven years of age. Paternal equivalent James, already far from home at fifteen, running away from the stigma of illegitimacy and into a more prosperous and respectable future.
