Holmes / Davison marriage abt 1920 - 25
Alice May DAVISON married my grandfather James Henry HOLMES from Pinchbeck (west?) Alice's father was James W DAVISON who was the butcher in (9?) Church Street, Donington. The family apparently had various business interests in Donington including a sweet shop and the gas works in addition to the butchers? After their marriage James & Alice May farmed on land at (the old) Bridge Farm, Westdale alongside the 40 foot drain, but they seemed to have lived in the town until she died (suicide) in about 1948. My father Geoff(rey) was born in town in 1926 and attended DGS and apparently was senior patrol leader in the school scout troop pre & early WW2 days. School head & scout master was one of the TAYLORs. After Alice's death Dad moved in 1950 into Bridge Farm with my mother Megan (RYLOTT) for a few years. Any extra information will be much appreciated from Old Doningtonians or the offspring etc!
