Edward Henry Smith (188) was born at Good Easter in 1881.

 

 

He was christened on 9th April 1882

 

His childhood was spent at Wares Farm, Good Easter although he did move to The Laurels, Good Easter before 1911 where he lived with his widowed mother.

 

He was described at that time as a farmerÕs assistant so I presume that Martha Smith was nominally farming Wares Farm whilst Edward Henry did the work !

 

He married Florence Gertrude Roots (525) in Good Easter on 31st March, 1918 in Dunmow, Essex.

 

 

She was born in Bristol St Michaels, Gloucestershire in 1884.

 

 

She was previously married to William Davis Roots. He died on 10th November 1912 at Manns Farm, High Easter.

 

She died on 14th March 1954.
