Alexander Fyfe....  Married Janet Pattison, they had a son (my grandad) William Fyfe.

William Fyfe .... Born 15th August 1902.  Died 10th January 1969. William was the son of Alexander and Janet Fyfe and was born at 85 Thomas Street in the Drypool area of Hull.  William was raised by William Hansell Beauchamp and his wife Ellen in Sculcoates.  William Fyfe married Lillian Atkinson at Sculcoates Register Office on May 5th 1929 at age 26.  At this time he was a Sergeant in the East Yorkshire Regiment   No.4335408, and was living at 58 Williamson Street, Sculcoates.  Click here to see map of Williamson St.

 In 1931 William, Lillian and their daughter Sheila were living in army barracks at Beverly, and in Nov of that year their first son Hugh was born.  !n 1932 the family were posted to India where William was a Small Arms Instructor to the Indian Army. During the years that William and his family were in India, two more sons were born, first William Arthur and then Keith.

Around 1938/39 the family returned from India to Hull, where they lived first at 3, Fern Villas off Victor Street, and then shortly after at 33 Steynburg Street. By this time William was a Staff Sergeant, Hon. Departmental Indian Unattached List.   Click here for map of Steynburg St.

Sadly on the 9th October 1940, Lillian passed away at the age of 41.  For a short time the children were sent to to stay with Lillian's brother Arthur Atkinson, on his farm at Brandsburton.

William then married Olive Jackson, who was a widow at the time and had a daughter named Sylvia, (sadly Sylvia passed away September 2002).  By this time the Second World War had started and due to the bombing around Steynburg Street, William decided to move his family to somewhere safer.

From Steynburg Street, William moved his family to Del La Pole Avenue, which is close to where Hull City Football Ground's are now.  However due to the heavy bombing that Hull received during the war, William decided to once again move his family to safety.  Around 1943 the family moved to Filey, where they remained until the end of the war.  Whilst in Filey, William and Olive had a daughter, and they named her Janet.

In 1945, after the end of the war, William and his family moved back to Hull, and lived at 53 Abby Street.  At some time later William retired from the Army, having served some 20 years plus with the East Yorkshire Regiment.  He later went on to  become the Catering Manager at Butlins Holiday Camp in Pwllheli, Wales, and some time later the manager of the Trawler Owners Association at St. Andrews Docks in Hull. William and Olive spent the remainder of their years at 53 Abby Street. (Abby Street adjoins Williamson Street and can be see on the same map).
