Family – Margaret Lake

The speaker was Margaret Lake talking about her maternal great-grandmother who was born in 1842 in Appleby, Westmorland. The talk was illustrated with photographs and images of documents and records associated with Jane Davyes who lived until the age of 89 and was married three times. The materials were bequeathed to the speaker by one of her aunts and included a suitcase full of scrapbooks and newspaper cuttings as well as a ten page foolscap document handwritten by Jane Davyes in which she outlined a history of Appleby for a talk that was given in 1918!
