West Farm

Winteringham Local History and Genealogy

West Farm, and reverse

Although this is from a standard-sized postcard, the photograph was just 10 cm wide, and rather dark.  This scan has therefore been much enlarged and lightened.


West Farm 1 - Oggs 800w

The card is addressed to Master H(arry) Dawson, 16, Queen Street, Barton and is from “Ethel.”  Harry was later killed in World War I, aged 31.  Harold is not on our war memorial as he had moved to Barton to live with his wife Annie at 16, Queen Street.  He had been raised at Winteringham by Thomas and Cecilia Dawson, with two older sisters (Clara and and Isabella) and a younger brother and sister (Walter and Elsie).  His father was a butcher and dealer.  Harold died on 23rd September 1917, ironically on the anniversary of his father’s death in 1908, aged 31, and is commemorated on the Tyne Cot Memorial.  He served with the Northumberland Fusiliers.
