Can I end it here? No, but I do intend to take a break. Our garden needs some attention, Grandad Beck would not be impressed! Going forward I will write occasional posts on a variety of subjects. There are so many more family members to research, more local history to investigate. As I wrote many of the posts, I found questions I didn’t have time to investigate and puzzles I would like to solve. Going forward I can take the time to research and answer some of these questions. Do you have any questions or research you would like me to write about?
I have been very fortunate that Grandad Beck took so many photographs and that they have survived within the family along with a few letters. There are plenty more to show you, including a lot that his brother Earnest sent back from America. I will leave you with one more photograph, I have several copies of this one and it is included in the albums, so it must have been a favourite. It is most likely taken at Buckland Newton, in the cottage were Grandad Beck’s spent his childhood and at this time his mother, Frances and father, Eli, still lived there. The photograph looks as though he forgot to wind the film on. It is a photograph of his first wife Rebecca, with another of Rebecca and his two children Lionel and May. It is sad to think that Grandad Beck was to outlive them all.
Please stay in touch, I would love to hear from you.
