On This Day ... 26 April

1878     David Powell married Margaret Jones at St Garmon's Church, St Harmon, Radnorshire, Wales. The minister officiating at the marriage was Francis Kilvert, a clergyman who also kept a diary which was published many years after his death. Comments on this wedding are recorded in the published version of the diary.

1896     Wilson Mossom died at the Workhouse in Throston, Hartlepool, Co Durham, England. He was 64 years old.

1905     Ralph Hudson was born in West Hartlepool, Co Durham, England. He was the son of Robert Hunter Hudson and Margaret Mossom, and emigrated to Canada in 1927. He is believed to have died in the 1930s but as yet I've not found any evidence of this.
