The annual service of Remembrance will be held at the Aqueduct Bridge, off Chapel Lane, Aqueduct on Sunday 11th November 2018 at 2.30pm. We hope to see as many as possible of you there on the 100th Anniversary of the Armistice that brought WWI to an end.
Hi, my name is Penni. My grandmother was Myra Geary Orr Bain. I have some information from the family and from online regarding her living at the Aquaduct in Madelay. I have not worked on my history for awhile but want to start up again. She was born in 1870 and went under names of Letitia Myra aka Miriam Richards. It appears her mother was Ann Richards Geary. It looks like her cousin was Henry Geary who married Elizabeth. Any connection
Hallo Rob. My grandfather’s brothers were George Geary and Percy Geary. They both appear on the St Paul’s plaque which you sent to me via email. Every year I post on social media my own personal remembrance for them. It was a twist of fate that their brother John Geary was found unfit for medical service in WW1. He is my grandfather and should he had served he would more than likely not might not have survived, and thus my Geary line would not be. Perhaps you could read out my own personal condolences for their sacrifice on Sunday 11th November. My grandaughter has 8 children (yes 8) and she is only 35 and happily married. She is home schooling her children and is very interested in her ancestors. So she is teaching her children about the importance of November 11th 1918, Armistice Day, and I have sent her the plaque and the history. I should add that I do belong to the Aquaduct family history group, and have contacted the group in 2017 with details of my family, and my wish for more information about the Geary/Pooler family. I now know the tragedy behind Henry Geary’s life and death and how hard it would have been for his wife Harriett to have carried the burden or raising her children. Hence that it why I would love to have contact from maybe one of the Pooler family who might have photos or information of her children . As yet I have not had any contact. I thought you might like to know the above, that as the plaque says “their names liveth for evermore ” as surely they do, through the generations of my Geary line and now even onto my great grandchildren.
