In March 2010 my mother decided to sell the family home of 40 years and move into a more manageable apartment. The result of this decision was of course the obligatory emptying of the attic and other nooks and crannies. During this process many artefacts and documents that had not seen the light of day for many a year were unearthed then passed to me for safe keeping.
Several weeks later I was sorting through an old cardboard suitcase that contained many of the smaller items including numerous envelopes containing correspondence and newspaper clippings. I eventually came across an envelope containing a single sheet of folded paper. On unfolding the paper I realised someone had sketched a family tree showing JACKLIN line descendants beginning with my great great grandparents Daniel JACKLIN 1842-1897 and Lydia Jacklin (née Lydia PEARCE) 1843-1922 and ending at 1981, the date I believe the document was created. Notes detailing those that were known to have passed away and the whereabouts of some of the living had been added.
This family tree had been sketched out with blue ink on paper and posted to my parents in 1981. I am fairly certain of the date since the postmark is clearly legible and the document has been folded to fit the length of the envelope. Though very few dates and surnames are available it may prove invaluable in researching branches of our family tree.
Daniel and Lydia JACKLIN had 5 children:
I have scanned the document and added it to my gallery though to preserve the privacy of known living people I have intentionally only provided a thumbnail of the original image. Anyone wishing to see the full size document should contact me using my contact form.
