The Armitage connection to Lady Barron!!
Dad’s comments to the history of the Armitage – ‘Tucks wife was one of the Launceston ‘undertaker’ Armitage’s’!
I try not to get too involved with other family tree’s. There’s enough to do with our lot.
We all know that Dads (fathers side) Uncle Tuck married Lizzy Armitage. Last week discovered Dad (mothers side) great-uncle William Briant married Lizzy’s elder sister Ada Armitage. So Lizzy was also a sister-in-law to Harry Briant’s eldest brother William.
A look at Ancestry putting together Lizzy’s and Ada’s family tree.
If we thought the Robinson/Holt family was huge, we can think again.
The Armitage family are also plentiful. Another FI connection. Thomas Gunter, Store keeper at Lady Barron also married another of Lizzy’s sister Linda.
Dad had no idea.
Lizzy had plenty of family connections around the Lady Barron district as it turns out. I don’t think Tuck and Lizzy’s descendants are aware of this information though.
This may also explain finding the cut out of Frank Gunter (in uniform WWI) in the Briant photo album, not only a family friend but loosely connected through uncle William Briant, whom I believe used his second name ‘James’ in lieu of William.
As it turns out I recently found this photo, on the back is written with ‘kindest regards to Horace 1919’. I suppose when Horace and Maud married they would’ve known both had Armitage relatives.
