A Door From Down South

Here is the Advent Calendar door for today.

15 April 1924 Agnes Maffey and Olive Cleeve

15 April 1924
Agnes Maffey and Olive Cleeve

The home of my great-grandmother, Agnes Maffey (Cleeve) and one of her daughters, Olive Cleeve who we met at her front door a couple of days ago. This house is in Dummer, Hampshire, where the Cleeve family grew up. Dummer looks like a lovely place, here is postcard showing the village.



Agnes Maffey is a lady I need to re-visit at some point. In the 1881 England Census she was married to Theophilus Way Bown, living in Michelmersh, Hampshire and had a two-year old son, Frederick Bown. In 1886 she was Agnes Cleeve, and gave birth to her first daughter, Edith Cleeve with what I assume to be her second husband, Charles Cleeve. Much more researching is necessary, and I will return to her very soon.

Here is a little peek at tomorrow’s door:

Welcome to my blog where I am enjoying meeting my family - past and present - one at a time. Join me as I learn who my ancestors were, where they lived, what their occupations were and what everyday life was like for them.

    Dummer is a lovely village, not far from us. And what lovely photographs you have.

    • Hi Becky, how lovely to hear from you and to know you’re not far from Dummer! I would love to know more about Dummer, I shall drop you an email later (once I’ve put the Christmas tree up!) xx
