Family Pages - CULLIN, Harry Barton and Mary

Photographer : G W Forsey, Upper Parkstone (Dorset)

My grandparents were Harry Barton and Mary CULLIN, who died in 1951 and 1953 respectively, and are buried at St Edmund's Church, Wootton. The baby is my father Eric Barton Cullin. Dad was born on the 6th December 1910 and this helps to date the photograph of my grandmother only to about the very end of 1910 or early 1911. I can only guess that the other photo is earlier as my father is not in it.

By way of background information, my grandparents were married on the 4th February 1901 at Cowes Baptist Church. They lived most of their married life at 89 High Street, Wootton, and my grandmother's maiden name was PASKINS.

Editor's note:

The 1901 Census finds Harry and Mary Cullin boarding with a widow, Mrs Alice Moore, at 8, Glebe Street, Pudsey, Yorkshire (West Riding), where his occupation is given as a Civil Engineer.

The 1911 Census shows Harry Barton Cullin, and his wife and son, with one servant, at Brooklands, Wootton Bridge. He is a Surveyor and Sanitary Engineer working for the District Council.
