Trevor Owen Cale
First Cousin three times
9 Jan 1890
Wedding of Trevor Owen Cale and Gertrude Elizabeth Jenkins
- A pretty wedding was solemnised at the parish church on Thursday
between Trevor Owen, fourth son of Mr. and the late Mrs. Cale of
New House, and Gertrude Elizabeth, fourth daughter of the late Mr.
James T.S. Jenkins and Mrs. Jenkins, The Cross.
The wedding was a military
one, the bridegroom being attached to a Canadian signalling corps
in France, the best man being the bridegroom's brother, Sergt. Cale,
and the bride was given away by her brother, Pte. Arthur Jenkins.
By a happy coincidence, Pte. Arthur Cale, another brother of the
bridegroom, was also present, being on leave from France.
The bridesmaids were
the Misses Lily and Doris Jenkins, sisters of the bride. The bride
looked charming in a saxe blue costume with black fur collar and
velvet hat trimmed with old gold.
The service was choral,
Miss Alice Watkins acting as organist. the hymns sung were "The
Voice that breathed o'er Eden", "How welcome was the call". The
"Wedding March" was played as the bridal party left the church.
The reception was held at the bride's home, and later the happy
couple left for a short honeymoon. Numerous presents showed the
esteem in which the bride and bridegroom are held.
