1 day of gifts and partying with 4 Grandkids still with Mum, and 1 day of gifts and partying with my Grandson 1, his "missus" and our G.G.Son Ashton, now 7 months old.

Ashton had fun with all family in turn.
His Nan (Mum's Mum) <3s putting funny outfits on him.
At school in which his Nan works, Ashton also was working in capacity of "Fairy On A Board" (to omit naughty non-consonant .... a fairy Ashton must b! LOL!) :-D :-D
All kids at school thought Ashton was soooooo funny and a darling!

FAMILY HISTORY HOLIDAY CONCLUSSION

DAY 7:
OH and I thought to go back to Justoutchurch for a 2nd look, as I was so in high spirits on 1st X of visiting that I forgot taking of photos I was planning.
I took photos of a little house which was my Gran's old school.
http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/keepsafe/asset/details/41039063

Also in Justoutchurch is a building which was a local pub - Night Colour Bull (Girl of it's landlord had marital union with my Gran's boy sibling.

Following Justoutchurch, it was back to Brookland for a 2nd look and a hunt of it's burialground. I had a list of burials from K County's Family History I/N positions, so I was knowing which family folk had burial in this situation.
.Again, a sob-inspiring day!


DAY 8:
As I did not want to go back so soon, I had a look around shops and amusing things in Dymchurch..
A good lunch in a start of18th Century pub- BIG C Inn in Dymchurch.
http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/keepsafe/asset/details/41039086

I had chick and wild mushrooms pudding, chips and grass colour round pod product.. OH had Cow and Offal pudding, chips and grass-colour round pod product

Romn*y Marsh is famous for smuggling in days of long ago. This pub had drawings, and displays of such historic actions and folk on it's walls, which was comical.


Following lunch, I took a long adios walk on Dymchurch’s Cfront.
C was full in to it's wall. I was thoroughly liking my walk as I was licking my icy dairy product.
http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/keepsafe/asset/details/41039154


All good things must be concluding .... so off to M4 and Cymru. :-D

oooooo such a long moving clock :-S with this yarn not in applicability! :-0

So to assist it's rallying ..... my holiday diary from a County which starts with K not far from London


MY FAMILY HISTORY HOLIDAY IN A K COUNTY! <3

Day 1:
Car Motion and Park:
I and OH had a good car motion of sorts, with only 1 hold up on M4 motorway as a mishap had it's occuring for a poor individual/s.

Holiday Park nr. Dymchurch was found without mishap.
It was not without mishap that caravan was found though!:-| :-| :-(

I had a 2nd Olympic Colour caravan on my booking form, as I was wanting and what was paid for, but a 3rd Olympic trophy colour caravan was awaiting us which was appallingly dirty.
A lot of disputing with staff had it's following.
Following digging in of back part of foot, Park Boss was finding a Gold caravan for no cost on top.


It is only a smallish park, but as I was only going to b using park as mostly a snoozing station, I was not anxious about that.
No cost for park's Amusing-Folk Pass had it's bill adding, as it was conclussion part of 12 months, so I was having a buzz by the quality of Amusing-Folk turns and so on, particularly by Amusing-Folk Gang, all of whom sang fantastically


Day 2:
Our first Family History visit was to Dymchurch, to a church that has an important family "Bring-to-Mind World War loss" markings.
My Gran’s sibling Ada and sibling-in-law Alf's monikas r on it.
http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/keepsafe/asset/details/5259423

Ada and Alf both lost living as bungalow on the coastal front took a straight hit by a bomb in August 1940.

Sadly, Burialmarks in this part of K did not stand passing of clock, b cos most r having making from soft K'ish sandrock, and most r now not lucid.

Following this, I paid a shock visit :-D :-D to my 2nd Cousin, who is living in Dymchurch. I was gaining wisdom of H through GR.
H's Granddad was a boy sibling to my Gran, and also to Ada, who I was writing about.

H straight away was giving moi a big hug and a big glass of Rosy pink alcohol from grapy product. Visiting H also was 1 of H's sons and his family, so it was good to c 2nd Cousin and 3 of H's family for 1st x.
H was asking I to visit following day also.


Day 3:
OH and I had good fun on our visit to my cordial cousin.
H's husband was in situation and H's pal who is living by H was also visiting.
All of us sat in shadow of H's crying willow drinking various colours of grapy product!! and chatting about family history.
As H had not b4 had visitation to our family history situations, I was inviting H to join us, and H was wanting to.


Day 4:
OH and I got H and our aim was JUSTOUTCHURCH.
This was the situation of my Gran, and H's Granddad's birth and living.
I was having joy to know that “JUST OUT HIRING” - situation of our family living according to 1891 / 1901/ 1911 Forms’ was still standing.
So a car motion to visit that situation, and also to a farm that H was calling on as a child- This was situation of our Grandfolks' man sibling and his marital woman many moons ago.

JUST OUT HIRING!:-S :-D
http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/keepsafe/asset/details/40738666


I was having thrills to find that t' Parish Church Marital Forms had a showing at St "Rock" and St Paul JustOutchurch.
http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/keepsafe/asset/details/41022857

In forms I found many family marital unions, including my Gran’s first marital union and My G.Gran’s 2nd marital union among many forms.


Our following port of call was BROOKLAND Parish Church.
I was goosbumpy, as Brookland is full of my family history.

http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/keepsafe/asset/details/40960926

http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/keepsafe/asset/details/40960797

http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/keepsafe/asset/details/40960792


I was again full of thrills to c an old old old old baptism font. In this font for 100s of 12 months my family folk had baptism. Historians r thinking that it had it's looting from Country that has Capital of Paris during 100 12 Months War!
http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/keepsafe/asset/details/40960742

http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/keepsafe/asset/details/40960779

http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/keepsafe/asset/details/40960906


Following this- a yummy lunch and a glass of grapy product in pub, Royal Oak.
http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/keepsafe/asset/details/41038877

Following lunch, a walk around Brookland churchyard, as I know my 4DADs and 4Mums r in ground situation, and although most of Burialmarks r not lucid, H & I found our 5th G.Grandfolks' burial situation and burialmark.
http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/keepsafe/asset/details/41039310

No X to look in Burial Ground by Brookland churchyard as H had to b back.
So, again a glass of good rosy pink alcohol from Grapy Product in shady position of H's Crying Willow b4 going back to holiday park.


DAY 5:
This was holiday's only day it was raining hard, so I took things hushly in morning b4 going swimming in pool in pm.
Good night o'clock amusing as Park's Amusing Folk Gang did songs from musicals- Oil, 1 of Ditch Islands' Boys, Dirty Dancing, Hairspray and so on.


DAY 6:
Again a brilliant day in company of my 2nd Cousin.
First aim .... to HAMROAD and ORLROCK.
In this situation our Wood / Aust*n folk had start.
St Mary’s Church also was playing a big part in my 4Dads livings.
Sadly it had not had it's availability of visiting, but H & I did walk around church grounds.
http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/keepsafe/asset/details/41023202

http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/keepsafe/asset/details/41022996

Following this our driving man took us to BR*NZ*TT and it’s church.
http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/keepsafe/asset/details/41038963
In this church my 2x G.Grandfolk did say marital vows, as did my 4x G.Grandfolk.
It’s a sob-rousing inspiration to b standing in this position.

In day's conclussion, a car motion to a situation that to moi was most inspiring of all! FAIRGRASSLAND.
This is situation of my 4Dads starting out b4 moving contiguously to Brookland.
Fairgrassland's small small living situation is not in situation now, but Fairgrassland's historic church, (situation of another pair of my 4x Great Grandfolk having union ritual), is still sat in a far-flung spot in a marsh, amid baahing animals and mooing animals.

http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/keepsafe/asset/details/40996546

Fairgrassland's inward is soooo striking. It has booths all with cloud colour paint with black trim.
