This Bible contains information on the Hewson Family of Cambridgeshire and Norfolk and is not for sale.
The tree of this Hewson family is on site.
Loose, inside the family pages of this bible, was a newspaper cutting of a obituary:
Late Mr H V Hewson
The funeral of the late Mr Henry Vincent Hewson (whose death occurred at Watton on Friday) took place in the church yard on Monday. The family mourners were :-
Among others were
- Nellie and Bertha (Daughters)
- Mr and Mrs Harry Hewson
- Mr and Mrs Walter Hewson
- Mr and Mrs Roger Hewson
- Mr and Mrs Ernest Hewson
- Mr and Mrs Charlie Hewson
- Mr and Mrs Fredrick Hewson
- Mr and Mrs Thomas Hewson (Sons and daughter in law)
- Mr Large and Mr F Preston (Swaffham)
- Mr Leonard (Carbrook)
- Mr G Kerridge and Mr E Steggles (Thompson)
- Mr Howard (Harling)
- and Mrs F C fox
The Widow was unable to attend.
The Rev A F Corney officiated. As the cortege entered the church the organist Mrs E R Jessup played "crossing the bar" and upon leaving Handel's "Largo".
The coffin was inscribed "Henry Vincent Hewson Died Nov 16th 1928. Aged 83 years".
The bearers were Messrs Alf Bird H Drewry L Jermy and Alf Jarvis. Mr H Smith (Hockham) carried out all the funeral arrangements.
It is interesting to note how important other peripheral information, such as the name of the newspaper, is to later identification of such a cutting.
