Granny

A Memory of Bewholme

Gertrude Margaret Whytehead (Daisy) was our grandmother. She was the daughter of Henry Yates Whytehead and we believe her mother was also Gertrude.
They lived at Bewholme Grange and Granny may have been born there in 1878.
She was the eldest of a large family. We know of Alice, Leonard and Frederick but we are sure there were more.
Henry Y Whytehead may have been a doctor.
We have an old black and white photo of the house but don't know when it was taken.
You could have a copy if you wish but I'm not sure how to send it by e-mail. I'll investigate if you like.
We would like to know when the house was built and if a member of our family commissioned it.
We'd like to know where family members are buried if in this area.
