Winterbourne Family History Online...
of Winterbourne Down
Samuel was born 24 July 1874;
father John Flook c1843;
mother Marion Brown Flook, nee Dando, c1844.
Samuel is on the right in this picture. Perhaps some military expert could tell us something about the uniforms. Sam would have been 26 at the time of the Boer War, so would these uniforms be of that era?
His granddaughter, Jean Bony, would also dearly love to know who the other gent is.
Photo's and names kindly supplied by
Jean Bony, granddaughter of Samuel.
Jean would like to hear from any members of the Flook family.

Samuel's wife was Florence Summers. They are seen here in about 1917, Sam is by now a private in the Somerset Light Infantry and they have three children...
Bill is the oldest;
then Alice Florence Rose, 20 March 1911;
and the youngster is Hubert Oliver, 9 July 1913.
After the Great War, Sam became a bricklayer. Their fourth child, born 7 October 1921, was Joyce Ruth, mother of Jean, from whom these pictures were received.
The family all lived in Winterbourne Down; later moving to Beacon Lane, Winterbourne.
An inspection of the Parish Records will reveal that the name Flook is a very common one in the area.
