Robert Digby Seymour


Born June quarter 1874 York

Married Edith Amelia Rowley at Alne September 15 1903

Born in Alne village where he met and married Elizabeth Rowley who lived 2 houses away the only child of Charlotte Elizabeth (from Alne) and John Rowley (a landowner from Allenthorpe) who by 1891 were living on their own means. They must have been quite well off because Edith had her own private governess in 1881. Witnesses at Robert and Ediths wedding were Frederick Thomas Powty and Dorothy Seymour Roberts sister. At the time of their marriage Ediths father was dead and interestingly his occupation was down as Gutterman?
