These people are Teresa's children...there is Lynsey...Shaun...and Kirsty. The photograph was taken on Shauns wedding day a couple of weeks ago. We haven't seen any of the children since they were really little and now they are grown with children of their own...
And the little sweetheart in the sink is Ava Rose who is Shauns daughter...And this is Cayden and his little sister Ava Rose...
I've just asked Cayden and Ava's Mum...and Shauns new wife...if she'd like to see the family tree which I've done on Teresa's side and she said she and Shaun would be really interested...I'm dying to tell them they are related to a man beheaded on the orders of Henry V111 because I've not mentioned it to T actually 'cos I'm not altogether certain she'd be much interested.
Shaun used to love a chain-mail helmet we have when he was a little boy...unfortunately it's been mounted on a not very good stand...bit slapdash actually...though the chain mail and the bit to come down over your nose is grand. I can't remember where I bought it...probably at some antique fair donkeys years ago. Haven't any idea whether or not it's geniune mind you...whoever owned it had a small head...!
So I'm going to find all the papers about poor Richard Empson and send them off and hope they find it of interest...it'd be lovely to think I could pass on all the research I've done to people who would care about their ancestors as much as I do...
