And they sure saw some changes mine would often talk about going from horse and cart to car and bus, and planes and man walking in the moon. That new tangled telephone, TV and the colour TV, I just wish someone had recorded it all.

Hi Gut,

Goes to show eh? Mum was 42 when I was born. Gran was 28 when Mum was born. Both relatively old ages for births in those days. Gran was born smack bang in the autumn of 1888 in the East End. At least 5 generations going back from her birth were all East Enders. And all the other gt..gt gt grandparents on Mums side.

Phil
I find it strange sometimes on that line she was born 88 her daughter 6th child, was born 1914 (gran aged 26) her daughter, my mum in '35 (Nan was 21).

Now if each first born was born when the mum was the age if the youngest in the generation could probably fit another two generations in, (if you can follow that)

Gran born 1888,
Her first born 1902 (yep 14)
The youngest mum in the next generation was 16
Next generation it was 18
Next a 17 (that'd bring us to 1959 the year I was born)

So instead of Gran, Nan, Mum, me, there'd have been another generation.

Now on dad's side a whole different kettle of fish

Grandad was born 1883 (always thought if funny that grandad was five years older than great grandmother)
He was 46 by the time rolled around
Then dad was 30 before he was blessed with perfection (me).

Hi Gut,

You are old enough to recall "North Sea Gas" being piped into every home in the early 1970's.
My gran saw the workers slowly digging up and working their way down the street. She wasn't happy. We had to be there all the time any worker entered the house.
"Bleedin' strangers".. she called them.
When told by me..that NSG was much safer than ordinary gas..and that it was impossible for people to gas themselves in the oven with this stuff. .she said..
"If I wann'id to bleedin' top my bleedin' self.. I would 'ave done it by now boy.
One question. Will it cook the Sunday dinna betta?"
I thought quickly and said.."Actually..yes".
"Well..thats orright then". "Let the lazy sods in n tell 'em to get a bleedin' move on. Today is Friday. I want Sunday dinner ready by 2.30 sharp on Sunday. I'll save 'em some drippin'."

She didn't have a phone. My Dad rewired her house in 1948 when her hubby died. She never went to a hospital in her life before the day she died aged 90. "Don't trust bleedin' doctors ". She gave birth to her 4 kids at home..helped by her sister. Smoked 20 strong tobacco roll ups a day..drank a pint of Guinness every evening at home.. and was as hard as nails. I loved her to bits.

Kids dont know the meaning of family history today.


Regards

Phil

Hi Gut,

Much like my family.
Gran..b.1888 was the youngest of 10.
The oldest was born 1873 (gt uncle Charlie)
Her Mum was born 1854 (next youngest)
Her Gran born 1829.( next youngest)

If the oldest had been "counted" in direct line each time... It would be 1806, 1844, 1873, 1904, 1926,1951.
My Mums cousin b. 1925 was the youngest of the kids of Charlie (9 kids..8 boys and one girl).He..the cousin..was born one year before the oldest(a cousin of his) of the generation before. He died 8 years ago aged 83.
Like you say..a generation jump.
My youngest was born in 1995. 79 years after his gran!

Regards

Phil

You can't beat Grannies, they're like a second mother. At whatever hour I was put to bed, it was always too early. So I sneaked upstairs (taking care not to make the stairs creak) and watched my Nan's TV. She hadn't the heart to send me down. I fact I often got a mug of cocoa and some buttered toast.

I was lucky had a few grandmothers and one Great Grandmother.

A few grandmothers? I thought the traditional number was two.
