Mary Swinglehurst's story about her predecessors

This story was written by my fathers sister for her grandchilden who were given the task from school of finding out as much as they could about their ancesters.

The personal information contained here would have been lost forever had the children not been given this task.

The Charles mentioned received the O.B.E for his work raising money for charities. His story is printed separately.

The story crosses the 19th & 20th Centuries and has been placed here as Mary was born in 1908.
