Marriage of Miss E. S. Hall

An event of great interest to the residents of Whatton and the neighbourhood took place on Thursday, namely, the marriage of Miss Edith S Hall, third daughter of the late Mr. T. Dickinson Hall of Whatton Manor, with Mr. W. Gladwyn Turbutt of Ogston Hall, Derbyshire.

The ceremony was fixed for eleven o'clock in Whatton Church, and by that hour a large number of persons had assembled at the appointed place.

The weddington party drove from the Manor to the Church, and on their arrival the choir (which had been strenghened numerically for the occasion) sang the hymn, 'The Voice that breathed o'er Eden.'

The officiating clergymen were Rev. H. Jebb, of Firbeck Hall, near Rotherham, and Rev. T. Kendrick Hall, vicar of Whatton, and brother of the bride.

The brode wore the customary white, and had as bridesmaids Miss Molly Hall (sister), Miss Harriet Walker and Miss Nena Fenwick (cousins), and Miss Florence Jebb (cousin of the bridegroom).

In the course of the afternoon the bride and bridgegroom left Whatton for London.
