- How far do you live from your birthplace?
about 25 miles, the wife is about 10.
I know what the OP is getting at. No Dad marrying my mum was a hugely exotic thing at the time. He grew up in a rural village near Worthing and most people married people from nearby villages. But my dad went to sea in 1955 and met my mum a couple of years later when his ship was on a refit in one of the Tyne shipyards. About 350 miles away. She recalls that she might as well have been from a different planet the first time she made a trip down south to meet family.Posted 3 years agocanopySubscriber
20 miles. I’m the only one in this generation to move out of town. (1 out of about 10 cousins + my sister).
In the previous generation.. on my mothers side, all her siblings still live in town, fathers side its more complicated as they were born in various places due to my grandfathers job, moving around doing “something” for GCHQ types.. but they settled here. 2 remain, 3 have left. (2 of the 3 that left are my dads half-brothers)Posted 3 years ago
