WOOLSTON of UK - Middlesbrough, Luton or Sheffield

Journal by jazinoz

Mabel Caroline WOOLSTON was born on 24 Dec 1909 in England - the family fable goes: she was so tiny & premature & it was so very cold that there was concern that she would make it through the night. So her tiny little body was placed into the coal range oven & everyone prayed that she would make it through the night. And she did! Mabel Caroline WOOLSTON is my maternal grandmother. I was only 8 years old when she passed away. I would love to find out more about her & the roots of our family tree. Mabel had a number of siblings: Thomas, William, Lesley, Bernard, Eric, George, Dorothy & Alfred. Another vague story that I remember being told about Grandma was that she painted the wartime ships in WWII. Mabel Caroline WOOLSTON married Gilbert William JUGGINS in Sheffield and they migrated to New Zealand in 1951 aboard the 'Atlantis' as government assisted passengers with their children. Their two eldest children remained in New Zealand, while their three youngest children migrated to Australia.
