Emily Mary Hibble - a Memory of Cleator Moor.
My Paternal Grandmother was named Emily Mary Hibble. She was born at Redbeck Cottages, Cleator Moor. I have never visited Britain, but still fondly remember her memories of a happy childhood. She came over to Victoria Australia on a ship when she was 16.
She married Charles Gordon Reid and they were married for almost 50 years before my Grandfather passed away. She had a sister called 'Ess' (Esther) who had emigrated to British Columbia, Canada. She had another sister called Sarah, and a brother.
One day I hope to come to Britain and perhaps visit the area, as my Grandmother has been gone for almost 10 years now.
