Family Connections. - a Memory of Wimborne Minster.
The lady standing on the bridge is my great grandmother Hannah Elton nee Churchill and the small boy her grandson, Cecil Henry Stickland, my uncle. He became the verger at Christchurch Priory. Hannah lived with her husband Henry, a carpenter, in the cottage to the left of the photograph just out of shot. Hannah was the local midwife and at the time the photograph was taken her daughter Louisa Eliza had returned to her parents home for the birth of my mother, Ivy Emma Stickland.
