Hav­ing read in the Septem­ber edi­tion the story about the Coop and that the first sec­re­tary was a Ge­orge Hines, I was very in­ter­ested as my great­grand­mother’s maiden name was Hines.

So I looked up my fam­ily tree and found there was a Ge­orge Hines who was born in Oc­cold in Suf­folk in 1839 and mar­ried in Au­gust 1862 in Ip­swich to a Re­becca Rivers.

He died in Ip­swich in 1914. If he is the right per­son, which I think he must be, he was my first cousin three times re­moved.

I am writ­ing to thank you for bring­ing him to my at­ten­tion. If it hadn’t been for that story, I would never have known what he did. Mrs OLIVE BAR­BER Bar­ford Nor­folk
