Several of my ancestors had this day as their special day:
John Henry BLAGDON, born 18 January 1902 in Millbrook, Cornwall. I remember "Uncle John" (although in reality he was my great-uncle). No child was ever allowed to go into "Uncle John"'s room, and always had to do the seen-and-not-heard thing around him. Apparently, he was my Nan's older brother and it was his house; she had been promised it after his death. He was the son of John BLAGDON and Susan Emma FARLEY.
George EDGCOMBE, my great-great-grandfather, was born on 18 January 1838 in South Milton, Devon. He married his cousin, Mary Ann EDGCOMBE - their fathers were brothers.
Richard HARLEY, christened on 18 January 1794 in South Pool, Devon, was my 1st cousin 5 times removed. He was the son of James HARLEY and Deborah GOODYEAR.
Honor ELLIOT was my 7th great-great-aunt, and was christened on 18 January 1678 in Modbury, Devon. Her parents were William ELLYOTT and Margery BEERE.
