Important family day today, as we took the kids to meet their great-great-great-great grandfather. A man known to me as my great-great-great grandfather and to my mum as her great – well – I’m sure you get the picture.
James Creer, the Weaver of Colby.
And he is, of course, dead. And has been for a while.
But his memory lives on in the Manx Museum in Douglas:
I don’t think that there are many people who know who their great-great-great-great grandfather is. Or was.
Actually, after today, my kids have one over on me on that one.
