Date Added: 24 April 2008 Year: 1933 Institution Name: dnhhl Cat No: | 2003_063_003 | Picture No: 952

Christmas card and calendar for 1933 with a photo of a family of two adults, four children and a dog sitting in a garden. Marked "The Tysers Gordonbush" in Jimmy Bell's (?) handwriting. This and the accompanying two photos were in an envelope marked "John Sutherland from his granddaughter" in Jimmy Bell's writing.

Dimensions: Width 145mm - Height 145mm


The family at Gordonbush were/are TYSER. From the date of the calendar the people shown are probably Walter Parkyns Tyser and Jessie Woodriff Berkeley nee Quill with their 4 children. Comment left on 21 February 2019 at 12:57 by Christina Perera Clarification appreciated Administrator
Yes and the youngest is Richard James Tyser, born 1930 who inherited Gordonbush and later passed it (died 2004) on to his second wife Angela Mary Burley.
The oldest brother Lieutenant John Walter George Tyser died in WW2, 25 dec 1943 when he was 19 in Albania/buried in Athens Greece according to a family tree.

It might be a good idea to correct the title for this entry to the correct family name of TYSER.
They are not the 'Trysers'. Perhaps the writing on the Christmas card is hard to decipher.
