Edna Ellaline Bryan Holder 1911

Edna Ellaline Bryan Holder is my great aunt on my maternal grandfather's side. Edna and my grandfather were siblings, there were fourteen children in their family. I have a wonderful photo of them all at a wedding in 1911, but decided it would be good to find out a bit about each of them and scrap them separately. My cousin Nina is Edna's granddaughter and she told me a little about Edna's name. 

"'Bryan' was the surname of the lady who delivered her and my Mum thinks 'Ellaline' was possibly after a popular actress of the time, Ellaline Terriss."

I looked her up and Ellaline Terriss was an English actress and singer, best known for her performances in Edwardian musical comedies.

This photo shows Edna in 1960.
The strange thing is Edna was my grandfather, Ernest Holder's sister, and she married Alfred Humm who was my grandmother, Winifred Humm's brother - makes creating the on-line family tree very difficult! 

My layout was created from the crop kit for Papermaze's August crop, and was designed by Lou Collins. The kit contained:
The paper is Crate Paper, The Pier Collection - Frozen Treats.
Bazzill cardstock in Brown, Twig and Olive. Red Co'ordinations cardstock. White and cream lace and Prima roses.

In the crop we also used: Martha Stewart Butterfly punch, several dies, Tim Holtz Tissue Tape, Glimmer Mist, a Technique Tuesday and a Kaisercraft stamp & lemon Liquid Pearls. 

I added a title with Making Memories mini shimmer alpha stickers, acetate postmark and Distress inks.

Thank you for looking at a little of my family history.

  1. Lovely layout and a great story to go with it. I must admit I had to read it a few times to get my head around who was married to whom. Got there in the end :)
