Family marks start of fifth generation
A celebration was held to mark the arrival of the fifth generation of the same family.
Baby Beau, who was born to Yasmin Yarney and partner Tim French on June 17, was introduced to his great-great-grandmother, great-grandmother and grandmother.
The gathering was held at the home of great-great-grandmother and matriarch Norah Maynard, 80, who is originally from Pluckley and now lives in Aylesford, near Maidstone.
She lives at the Royal British Legion Village near Aylesford and as well as Beau, has 29 great grandchildren and 19 grandchildren.
Also there were grandmother Michelle Yarney, 40, formerly of Nutley Close, and great-grandmother Gloria Burling, 61, who recently moved from Kennington to Burmarsh Road, Hythe.
Mrs Burling said: “I’m chuffed with Beau’s arrival and I can actually enjoy him as I have just retired from my job as a nurse.”
