Dearest Father

Just a line to wish you many happy returns of the day. I am sorry I quite forgot to write this and post it yesterday I was so busy washing and ironing. Will try and write tonight. Much love to all, Amy x x x x x x x x

I found Amy and her father, Charles Wright in the 1901 census for Alvanley. Charles aged 31 was a blacksmith, his wife Mary was also 31 and they had three other children: Harold Seymour Wright, age 10, Blanche age 5 and Ellen/Nellie age 10 months.

We have some wartime greetings here, a ‘Many Happy Returns’ postcard sent to Kathleen Williams, of 96 Linden Road, Gloucester, and postmarked 3 September, 1917…”Dear Kathleen, Please accept my heartiest congratulations on this, your birthday. Love Phoebe.”

We found Kathleen, aged 11, living at the same address in the 1911 census, along with her parents Charles and Frances, and her siblings, Edward Charles, William Alfred, Isobel Elizabeth, Kenneth Gordon and Maude Florence.

Somebody must know of this family in their family tree….
