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

    I have seen this picture before. I think you posted it before. I think this is a blue dress that she made herself. By the way, her birthday was April 7, 1914 not May.

      Fixed the date…don’t know what I was thinking, it’s April in my database :-) I think I may have posted this years ago in my knitting blog… do you think she was married at this point?

    I don’t think she was married yet. She was 22 when they married. She looks more like 17 or 18 here to me. I could be wrong. I’m sure Gramma Ebert must have helped her with the dress. My mother didn’t really sew much that I can remember. When I had a sewing question I always asked Frances Ebert.
