Abraham Slater

Abraham must have been one of the earliest chauffers when he worked for Miss Thomas of Llantisilio Hall. He had many varied jobs including being the publican of the Red Lion at Horley near banbury.


James Arthur Slater

Arthur (as he liked to be called) died in the Libyan Desert when he had to 'ditch' his aircraft because of lack of fuel. He is a total hero as far as I am concerned, see the full tragic story from the home page.


Edith Annie Creasey

Edith, who is still alive (1999) at the age of 102, she has outlived one of her daughters, her son and one of her granddaughters. She is the second 'Centurian' in the family that I know of, although both from different branches (the other was my Aunty Lil).
