These months don't half go quickly, don't they.

So, here we are in June so please carry on with all your ancestral BMDs and other special occasions.

I have only one birthday to mark today and that is of a 1st cousin x 3, Elspet Cruikshank Raitt, who was born in Monymusk on 1st June 1874.

Today my lovely daughter is entering her first 10k race and just to make things more difficult for herself she has opted for one which goes across open fellside as well as tarmac roads. I shall be there, cheering her on and making sure there is a photographic record of the occasion. ;)

On 1st June 1828 my 4xG grandfather Henry Downs died in Bo'ness. He was a baker and married to Janet Richardson. I'm sure there were more children but the only ones I have so far are Jane (my 3xG grandmother), Robert, Henry and Richardson. My Downs are still a work in progress but I think he was born in Falkirk. While in Bo'ness last year hunting down the grave of my 4xG grandparents, I came across that of his grandson, could only be him as I am sure there wouldn't be many with the first name Walkinshaw. This grave told me that this grandson lost 5 children between 1848 and 1858.

On 1 June
In 1862 my 3 x great grandfather, Joseph Sewell, died in Shoreditch, London, aged 90.  He was born in Appleby, Westmorland, into a family of coopers, a trade which he continued after he came to London some time in the late 1700s.

My aunt, Doris Giovannelli Wilson, married Stanley Arthur Whitnell Wilson in 1929, in West Ham.  They were not related, so she didn't change her name on marriage.

John Henry Conquest, a second cousin 2x removed, died in 1954, at the Royal Northern Hospital, Islington, London, aged 79.

Conquest, Crowsley, Giovannelli, Kingham, Marshall, Sewell, Wilson, Ashwell
