The following photos are from my Grandfather Charles Hurst’s collection from before 1930 and family photos that my cousin Mary was nice enough to allow me to digitize.
The Hutchinson family photo below was taken before my Grandfather Charles Hurst sailed from England to live in Western Australia in 1914.
Fanny and George Hutchinson were my great-great Grandparents. Fanny’s maiden name was Ockerby so when her daughter Mary Ann (my great grandmother) married Thomas Ockerby Hurst (my great grandfather) their children Fanny, Charles (my grandfather) and Sheila Hurst had both Thomas Ockerby and his brother Charles Ockerby as their great-grandfathers.
