I went to school with Thomas Oliver (son of Maud and John Oliver) and think there may be a resemblance between him and the Maud Fowler in this photo. Anyone out there have school or class photos of Spendlove School in Charlbury around 1960 (I think he went to Charlbury School), which is when Thomas would have been attending that school and would have been about the same age as Maud in this photo?

If there's one online somewhere out there I'm sure Shane will find it!

Very nice picture Linda, thanks for posting.

I wonder if anyone else has spotted the other probably 'Oliver' link this picture, more information can be found thread titled 'Legible Oliver gravestones for four consecutive generations (in Stonesfield)'?

Right at the centre of the photograph is a 'Maud Fowler'.

A Maud Fowler married a John Albert Oliver, son of Thomas Hanwell Oliver, and they lived for many years at Spring Villa in Stonesfield.

 Here's in Mauds gravestone:

As you can see Maud died in 2004, age 88, which makes here birth year 1916 - the same a Linda's Mum Marjorie.

So, two Oliver connections in this picture?

Thanks,
Shane

As my ramblings to Irene about her photo's of Church Hanborough School have nothing to do with Jane's original topic on the Blanket Factory I thought I had better start another topic.

Below is the photo of Church Hanborough School First XIChurch Hanborough School.jpg

Back row: Lizzie Slatter, Daisy Gessey

Middle row: Sybil Rawlings, Maud Fowler, Mary Smith, Miss Lord the teacher from North Leigh

Front row: Muriel Arkell, Marjorie Rogers, Audrey Case, May Margetts, Iris Warner, Emmie Margetts

Not sure of the date of this photo.  My Mum was born in 1916 so assume it is around 1927/28

Long Hanborough and Church Hanborough shared schools - the Infant School was in Long Hanborough and the Primary School was in Church Hanborough.  Both schools are now private houses.

Bye for now - Linda
