Early Labour an­ces­tor

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - WRITE IN -

I have read your ar­ti­cle about the birth of the Labour Party and found it most in­ter­est­ing. My grand­fa­ther, Tom My­ers, was also a fore­run­ner of the Labour move­ment in our area and a friend of James Keir Hardie. I have a photo of them to­gether with a few other peo­ple [see above] as well as a let­ter from Keir Hardie con­grat­u­lat­ing my grand­fa­ther when he won the Spen Val­ley seat. He was also a sup­porter of the suf­fragette move­ment and gave shel­ter to Christa­bel Pankhurst on her re­lease from prison. Jac­que­line El­lis, by email Ed­i­tor replies: Sounds like you have a grand­fa­ther to be proud of.
