Codling Family

Codling Family

This family portrait of the Codling family was taken in about 1907?

Back row:Margaret (Maggie), Isaac (Ike), Richard (Dick), Elizabeth (Lizzie), Matthew (Mattie), Thomas (Tom), Indiana (Indie).

Middle row: Thomas, Rachel, Mary, Hannah and Margaret with Daisy in her arms.

Front row: Greta, Violet.

Not shown on this picture is William the last and final baby of this generation of the Codling family. We are also advised (by Sandra Payne) that Indiana married Sarah’s great uncle Joseph William Cook in 1914.  Mavis Gray advises that Hannah married Albert Gray (her mother-in-law) in 1919.

Ann Bland told us: ”Lovely to see the photo of the Codling Family. Violet Codling was my Gran. She married Edward Miller from Danby.They had two children Allen and Margaret both still living.Lizzie married a Newton, Maggie married a Bulman, Ike was killed in a mining accident at Tin City in 1910, Thomas and Matthew married the Thurlow sisters from Boulby Banks Farm. Tom married Georgina and Mattie married Ada. Matthew died of Typhoid in 1913 at Great Ayton.Hannah married a Gray and Greta married Herbert Dowson. Richard and Anastasia’s daughter Stella was a Health visitor at Whitby and won the MBE. She died just recently.”

Thanks to Kate Patton (Dowson) for this image and details. Also thanks to Sandra Payne, Mavis Gray and Ann Bland for the updates.

    Richard (third on back row in this photo) was my grandfather. He married Anastasia Elliott and they had 9 children: Margaret, Mary, Stella,Anne, Bessie, Richard, Philippa, Thomas(my dad)and Anastasia. Of these 9 children, the youngest 3 are still with us. I am one of 7 children. Me and my siblings all live in the Whitby area.
