  • Hi
    I was looking at your website and noticed the school picture which has Molly Payne (Eileen Molly Payne) located on it. She is my second/third cousin and was the daughter of Bill and May Payne that lived at 5 Manor Close, Harston. She was born in March 1938 and would seem to be about 5 to 6 years old on the picture. Therefore my estimate would be 1943/1944.

    Hope this helps

  • Hi Stephen
    Thanks for this. I think you are correct & I have altered the dates.
    If you have any more Harston info or if you are in contact with Molly Payne & she could tell us more, that would be great
    Regards
    John

  • Judith Custerson had an identical twin, Shirley, who is not shown on the photo, possibly she was ill. Judith, was christened Margaret Judith, and her sister was Shirley Anita. They were partly named after their aunt, Margaret and mother Anita, the Badcock sisters who can be seen in the 1918-19 school photo. She was always known as Judy to avoid confusion with her aunt. Judy married an American in 1953, and moved to the USA. Shirley married in 1952. They were born on 1st April 1935.
