Gregory Family Photo

Gregory Family of Tideswell

Gregory Family of Tideswell circa 1890s

This family portrait shows most of the family around the 1890’s. I have no information about who took the shot or where it was taken. Charles Herbert is second from the left.

On June 25th, I went up to my Aunt and Uncles house in Tideswell, they had kindly allowed me to rescan some old family photos. I scanned some years ago, but lost the high quality originals to a computer crash.

I re-scanned the old pics, plus a few I had overlooked before. These days I made a better job of it , so here are a few of the Gregory pics.

Fred, Mona and Edwin Gregory

Three of his children, Fred, Mona and Edwin Gregory. Circa 1905?

Edwin Gregory was my Grandfather. He had a keen skill for anything mechanical.This wonderful old photo shows a school class, I guess this would have been taken in the old school in Tideswell churchyard. I cannot be exactly sure of the identities of the first two but we believe that they are Fred and Mona Gregory.

Edwin Gregory & Ivy Gregory

Edwin Gregory Married Ivy Tomlinson from Chapel Milton, Chapel-en le-Frith.

They lived in Tideswell until the 1990’s.
Ivy was a keen Accordion player and could also play the piano, she enjoyed amateur dramatics too.

They lived for a time at Town Head, Tideswell before moving to Pinfold, and then later to Sandford Cottage, Cherry Tree Square. Edwin was a brisk walker right up into his eighties.Even in his 90’s he continued to make model steam engines out of reclaimed machinery. All the models actually worked.
