A Proposal In The Churchyard...

A Memory of Acton.

My paternal grandfather, Ernest Charles Chamberlain, proposed to my grandmother Annie Brooks, in the churchyard here. He brought her in his pony and trap, in about 1907. He had an agricultural business, Farmers' Inventions, at Beeston Brook, and he built Osborne House there, and later The Crest, because Osborne was too much for Annie to manage. Annie was from Bunbury - her family lived at Fairview, on the Whitchurch Road.

With thanks to Rachel Duerden for this memory of Acton
