This is a lovely photo inherited from my maternal grandparents’ collection. It shows Granddad’s brother and my Granny has written (proudly) on it “Norman Cunningham Porter, 78 yrs, consultant specialist anaesthetist, with Rose, his granddaughter”. Rose looks so delighted with whatever her Granddad is sharing with her - I’m really tickled pink with this picture.
My Granddad was very proud of all his brothers and I would love to be in touch with others researching the same family – I have lots of photos which I’d be delighted to share.
Norman Cunningham Porter was born on 29 May 1914 in Pitlessie, Fife, to Rev William Henry Porter and Margaret (Minnie) Andrewina Dickson. William was ordained in November 1900 and was employed as the Minister in the Parish of Cults – the family lived in the same house as Sir David Wilkie, another Minister’s son and another source of pride
Norman moved to England and died in Somerset in 1995, but I don’t have access to English records (only Scottish ones) so I don’t have any further information on him and his family, but I’d be delighted to learn more.
Hop over to Sepia Saturday to read everyone else’s posts for this week.
