If you look at the photo from Jim Radley, which you say is almost certainly Kelling School, I see my great grandmother, Dorothy Wright sat front row, second from the left.Dorothy was born at Beckham in 1891, and Samuel was born at Gresham in around 1848.Dorothy married Herbert Stubbs in 1914, and he took over the licence at the Kelling Arms in 1934.He died in 1938, and Dorothy continued running the pub until 1957.I don’t know whether teaching was in the blood but seven of the children followed their parents into the profession. She married a school master, became head of a school in Derbyshire and managed to have eight children, all of whom became teachers!Needless to say, my father, her grandson, was also a headteacher and I have just retired after 18 years as a head. My father was told a story that when the local authority upset one of the sisters, they all threatened to resign and the authority backed down.Anyway, I don't know if this is of any help to you, or me just sounding off. A few years ago I was embarking on my family tree research and contacted your excellent website regarding three teacher sisters called Harrison who retired to Salthouse in the 1940s.
My great, great grandfather, Samuel Wright, ran what was called the Kelling Arms public house in The Street, Kelling. He took over as the Innkeeper in 1897, and my family ran it until 1957.
I believe that two of Rose’s younger sisters followed her to Salthouse once they too had retired from teaching.
As is described elsewhere on the website, they purchased a prefab bungalow at the 1933 Ideal Home Exhibition and it was duly delivered to Wells station and transported across the fields to where it stands today.
I am Edward (Eddie) Jarvis, descended from Salthouse's miller, John Dewing Jarvis through his son Edward (and from then to two more Edwards and a Lawrence). My partner and I live in Holt and have acquired a beautiful c.1800 metal deed box with a brass plaque engraved rather elaborately with the name 'C. My research led me to your website where I noticed that a relative, Mr Gathorne Girdlestone of Kelling had posted a brief family history.
I'm wondering if the box would be of interest to Mr Girdlestone and would be very grateful if you could either pass on my details or if you could put me in touch with Mr Gathorne himself.
