Hugill, Jennings and Tenniswood Families I was so pleased to find your fascinating website.JENNINGSMy grandfather Frederick Jennings married Fanny Isabella Tenniswood. His father was the George Jennings who was farm bailiff to H Croft and had worked his way up to that position from illegitimate and ag lab. I believe my grandfather owned several properties in the Stillington area and find myself wondering if his father acquired them on sale of the estate? Do any of your readers have any information.HUGILLOne such property was Holly Cottage, Stillington which he rented to his sister in law Martha (Pat) nee Tenniswood and her husband Thomas Hugill. My mother told of grandfather's annoyance on discovering they had chopped down the holly! I would love to know which property this was, if it still stands. I have a photo of Thomas standing at an easel with brush in hand if there any Hugill descendants reading this. TENNISWOODSAlfred Tenniswood the farmer and carter was my great grandfather. There are news paper reports of charges and accidents relating to drink and he died after falling from his cart 'under the influence'. He had eleven surviving children including my grandmother, the three eldest girls remained unmarried and both Alice and Elizabeth were hospital nurses, I have a photo of them labelled Leeds General Hospital with wounded soldiers in WW1 - perhaps they deserve a mention in the wartime page?I would be very grateful for more information about the Tenniswood family.I've just found an undated photo of Stillington Hall slightly different to those you have online, do let me know if you can use another.With best wishes,Pamela Hardman (nee Jennings)
