The Ivens of Lichborough, Towcester. 1937

Here’s a wedding photo of Nelly Irene Ivens (b.1911) getting married to Clarence Wood in 1937.

You’ll need to click HERE to see the newspaper article and accompanying photo.

In the photo are also: Peter Charles Ivens (b.1922); Marion Kate Ivens (b.1919) (dau. of William Harold Ivens, Nelly Irene’s uncle); Betty Cecily Ivens (b.1918); Nelly Irene Ivens (Bride); Muriel F. Ivens (b.1918); Charles Elias Ivens (b.1884) (father of the bride); Nellie Ivens (b.1887) [nee Hancock](mother of the bride); and John Henry Ivens (b.1912).

Peter Charles, Betty Cecily, Murial F. and John Henry are siblings of the bride. Marion Kate is a 1st cousin.

Nelly Irene’s family can be traced way back to 1661:

Her parents: Charles Elias Ivens (1884- 1968) [Rec 325] and Nelly Hancock (Lichborough)
