Charles SCALES & Ellen SMITH
Charles & Ellen SCALES are my maternal grandmother's parents i.e. my Great Grandparents.
And apart from a few dates, and photographs that my mother has, I know very little else about them!
Charles SCALES was born 21 May 1852, in either Baldock or Hertford, in Hertfordshire, U.K. I haven't,
as yet, acquired a copy of his birth certificate - but it's on my list!
Ellen SMITH was born 11 April 1847 in Stevenage, Hertfordshire.
My mother has a sampler stitched by Ellen in 1861, when she was aged just 14.
Charles and Ellen were married 24 September 1874, in Stevenage - this was one of the first records that
I found on first using the I.G.I. Index
Their children are:
Without my grandmother, Florence Harriet's birthday book, I wouldn't have many, if any, of the above dates!
