Leslie and Ruby Calcraft provided copies of photographs in 2014 showing the Calcraft family at Sykes Lane farm over the years – click here to see the collection. It is interesting to see these with the Canadian farm pictures from Joseph Parnham Calcraft’s farm at Indian Head in this article.
Three sets of Calcraft children attended the Muston Sunday School in 1939, from Breeder Hills Farm, Sykes Lane Farm and Sedgebrook Mill Farm – click here to see the picture from the Grantham Journal of 1 July 1939. A further report on these Sunday School children can be found in this recent article.
Several of the children of Joseph and Ann Calcraft can be seen in the Muston School photograph of 1902 here; and further Calcraft generations at the school in this 1923 link and again in this 1940 link. Their cousin Dorothy Calcraft attended Bottesford school, seen here in 1934, and she would later be crowned Festival Queen at both the 1945 Peace Celebration and the 1951 Festival of Britain.
We hope to add more photographs here in due course.
