They got married at St Peter ad Vincula, the parish church of Broad Hinton, Wiltshire. For much of his life he was a master baker in the area, later joining the GWR as a plasterer in Swindon. They had 10 children, one of which was my maternal grandmother.

  1. Alfred Benjamin was the son of the master baker in Broad Hinton, and became a master baker in his own right. He delivered bread to the village and other villages by horse and cart for many years.
    Elizabeth was a pupil-teacher at the village school, and companion to the squire’s wife. On her wedding day, the lady of the manor sent a large bouquet from her garden for the bride to carry, and the squire sent his carriage to take her to the church.
