Manny’s birthday book – November 15

November 15, 2011

Kate Greenaway's Birthday Book for ChildrenMy grandmother, who I called Manny, had a birthday book.  I’m posting the entries throughout the year, as they appear.

From Manny’s Birthday Book:  November 15th – Peggy Telford and Sylvia

A very old goblin lives in this tower,

He eats nothing but mustard and batter;

And why should he choose such very odd fare?

I will tell you – he’s mad as a hatter.

Sylvia is one of Manny’s daughters in law.

Elsie M Telford was possibly Elsie Margaret – long shot! born in Perth in 1912 (1912/1247).  She doesn’t appear in the WA Marriage index or the Death index.

If you think you know who Peggy Telford was, please comment and let me know.
