Hewish and Puxton Harvest Festival Committee 1927

Do you want to see if I can get a better scan of it? 

May be worth contacting Sharon Poole herself.

Have just spotted in the introduction to the book a photo of some chaps cutting down a tree. One of them is Colston PALMER - one of the names on my list to investigate. He is away in the distance though but I don't think he is in the Committee photo.

No 12 - Ernest Harry JONES

So could No 14 be his father - Harry Frances JONES - not sure he looks old enough!

Brilliant. Thanks, Rob. I’ve got a very bad, blurred copy of this photo but never knew the source. Funnily enough, I’ve got the very similar looking book – Weston-super-Mare in Old Photographs by Sharon Poole. The “Around” makes all the difference! Albert Osmond of Appleton Farm, Wick St. Lawrence was my 2x great granduncle. One of his younger brothers, Arthur Osmond of Heathgate Farm, Hewish, was my 2x great grandfather.

Snap! I thought 16 and 17 looked like brothers too. However, I don’t think it is Ernest Thayer. I think it’s Sidney’s older brother, Herbert Thayer 1887-1957. Reason – after Ernest married Susan Champion in 1923, they moved to Hill Farm, Clutton (near Bath). Their first child, Benjamin, was born there in 1926. Sidney and Herbert remained in Puxton running “Thayer Bros. – farmers”. If 18 is Albert Champion, he is standing next to the brothers of his son-in-law…but is also close to an actual son-in-law – Gilbert EH Frost. Gilbert was married to Susan’s older sister, Eleanor. Oh dear – everyone seems to be related to everyone else! Nevertheless, think 18 is a reasonable call for Albert Champion …all we need now is a comparison photo.

Here is another clipping from my Nan's scrapbook. It is about her dad Harry NICHOLS going off to Longmoor Camp to join the Royal Engineers which dates it to Dec 1915.

The first part of the article however refers to the wife of Lt Albert CHAMPION of the Royal Flying Corps who was "somewhere in France". His wife was doing a solo performance at St Annes. She was descibed in the 1911 census as a "Dramatic Student" so could obviously sing a bit. This Albert CHAMPION was the eldest son of Albert Joseph CHAMPION.
