The Haines Family

Tom Haines has been mentioned before on this blog. Indeed, this 1911 census family has already had a mention, when they lived on Church Street in Market Lavington.

Last names First names Sex Born Age District County
HAINES AMELIA F 1870 41 Devizes Wiltshire
HAINES TOM R M 1873 38 Devizes Wiltshire
HAINES TOM H W M 1905 6 Devizes Wiltshire
HAINES WINNIFRED A F 1906 5 Devizes Wiltshire

Now a photo has come to light which shows the family.

The Haines Family - a photo at Market Lavington Museum

Judging by the ages of the children, this must have been taken in around 1910 and it shows Tom the father, who was Market Lavington’s town crier, with his wife Amelia and the children, young Tom and Winifred.

If the photo jogs your memory and you have stories to tell about these people (sadly, young Tom died a couple of years after the photo was taken) then do get in touch with the curator.

Learn more about some village families at The Museum Miscellany at 7.30pm on Saturday 18th September in Market Lavington Community Hall. Tickets are on sale at Market Lavington Post Office.
