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.

    My name was Joan Dickens. I lived at No. 3 Glenfield Terrace, East Loftus. Number 2 Glenfield was where Tom Codling who married to Georgina Thurlow. They had six sons and one daughter. Isabel was six months older than me. We played in our back yard. There was Alan, Ike, Steven,he won a war medal. Ike was a Cold Stream Guard and very handsome. Then there was Raymond, Alick, and the youngest was Dennis, who use to play in our backyard as well. Mrs Codling was a member of the Primitive Methodist Chapel, Arlington Street.

    Dear Joan, I am Thomas and Georgina’s grand daughter. Denis was my father. I remember Mr. and Mrs. Dickens at number 3. and Mr. Dickens did one of his magic shows at one of our children’s parties in Liverton village hall probably n the early 60’s. I had 7 uncles, you missed out Sydney. There is a photo in our loft of your wedding day.
