The Berry family were often spelt Burry (probably beacause of the sounding of the name).

Fanny lived in Haywood Cottage at the top of Ankerdine Hill. Her sister Eliza was married to Philip Grubham (They were my great grandparents) and they lived at the Laurels on the opposite side of the road.

I am not sure how it came in to my grandfather (John William Jones) hands. Maybe Fanny left her house to her niece Lucy Grubham who married John (they were both my grandparents)

My grandmother Lucy died on the 12th June, 1951 (Aged 75) and my grandfather then married, Mary Elizabeth Doman (nee Davies) on the 1st November 1952, at St. Francis, Parish Church, Dudley. John was then 74 and Mary was 52.

They both moved to Haywood Cottage to live and after grandfather died on the 9th December, 1956 (Aged 79) Mary sold up and moved to the coast.
