On This Day - Adam's Birthday & Storey Wedding

On this day in 1919, my Great Grandparents Robert Mavin Storey and Minnie Metcalf were married at the Primitive Methodist Church on Howard Terrace, Morpeth. The witnesses were Ralph Shields and Nellie Metcalf, Minnie's sister. Ralph Shields was to become Robert's brother-in-law the following year.

which appeared in the Morpeth Herald
a week later.
Also on this day, Robert's father Adam Storey was born in 1853 at Newbiggin-by-the-Sea. It is not known whether this was a factor in the choice of date for the wedding.
