Year of the Grandfather - Our Farm was 100 years old March 2010!
A little genealogy; my grandfather Albert Hankin JR signed the deed for this property on March 23rd 1910. He originally was from London, England. My great grandparents, Alfred SR & his wife Sarah Anne nee Gates; also lived here in their old age finding eastern Canada, where their other son Francis lived, too cold for their taste even with jaunts to the Caribbean to warm up! Alfred JR married Evelyn Margaret Dyer, originally from Kenilworth, England November 11th 1925. My father is Wilfred Francis Hankin, born May 17th 1928 here, currently living in Brentwood Bay ... my mother is Lottie Ada Shirley nee Holmes originally from Wetaskwin, Alberta. They were married on my grandparents 25th wedding anniversary November 11th 1950. Count me in this line up with my English husband Michael Dowling; born in Wandsworth, England and our two children Rowan & Frances, born here and it now adds up to 5 generations and 100 years of one continuous family on this part of the original 1910 property! I’m actually on the old goat pasture part: good thing the goats are not here now to eat everything in sight, though I am told they will not eat my beloved Lavender! Of the original homestead I have four 100 year old apple trees that still happily produce, my grandfather’s old chicken shed that luckily never saw chickens and currently is my Lavender drying shed, and finally a wonderful 25+ foot cedar hedge that screens us from the 21st century traffic…Come take a peek behind that daunting cedar hedge and discover our timeless sanctuary of gardens and our beloved Lavender!
