A very special family reunion

A FAMILY reunion tomorrow (Saturday October 13) will see several generations get together for the first time.

The event will be a reunion of family members of John and Hannah Bailey, who were married in St Mary’s Church in Beverley in 1864.

John was born in 1844 in Bishop Burton and Hannah (nee Potter) came from Market Weighton.

Their first home was in St Andrew Street in Beverley.

The couple had 14 children and many of their descendants will meet up for the first time at the reunion at All Saints’ Church in Nafferton.

John and Hannah had lived in Nafferton, where John was the village policeman.

The get-together has been organised by Mrs Heather Winn, who is the last member of the Bailey family still living in the village.

She believes that there are still some family members in the Cherry Burton area who she has not been able to track down.

Anyone who would like to join in the reunion can contact her on 01377 254573.
