Sad news has arrived of the unexpected death of my cousin, Phil Kisby, who will no doubt be much missed by his wife, children, step-children and his mother. He was christened Philip Charles, so may well be the last in a long line of Charles Kisby's in the family, going back to our great-times-four grandfather, Charles Kisby (d. 1829). There have been Charleses in every generation, with the exception of our respective fathers. Our great-uncle Charles Horace didn't get the opportunity to fill in the missing generation, having had all daughters.
Mind you, Phil's daughter-in-law is a 'Charlie', so maybe we can at least live in hope of some 21st century Charlottes to continue the tradition!
General do-gooder, general creative person, general nerd. I blog here about my lifelong interests of art and genealogy, which are polar opposites in most respects. I plan to live my life in reverse to the norm, starting as a history obsessed teenager in dusty archives and ending wrinkly making cool stuff and having fun.
