I’d like to introduce…

Edward George "Ted" Turner

Edward George Turner, known affectionately to his family and friends as Ted, was a kind hearted, gregarious, right jolly English gent, loved by all who knew him. He was born on the 27th of June 1911 at Blake Cottage, Horn Street in Winslow, Buckinghamshire, where his father was employed as head groom to Mr Gosling of Blake House.

And His Lovely Wife…


Miss Phyllis Mary Collins, daughter of William Collins, publican of the George Inn in Winslow, which is where Ted met her one fateful day in the 1930s

One Lovely Blog


I woke this morning to the very nice news that I’d received a Lovely Blog Award from Alex over at Winging It Thanks so much Alex!! The genealogy blogging world has been so welcoming! Although I’ve been researching my family history for 30+ years, it’s always been something of a solitary venture. What a pleasure to find a community of fellow addicts!!

The creativity and talent of geneabloggers never ceases to amaze me. Although I rely on my reader to keep up to date with posts, I still try to sit down for a bit every day to peruse my favorite pages while sipping a cup of coffee.

Thanks again Alex

Passing on the love…I’d like to nominate a few of my favorite blogs
