Richard (Dick) Munn and Helen Lovel
my great grandparents

Dick was born in October 1851 at "½ past 10 pm", twin to Henry, at Botney Cottages Milton, sons of Richard and Elizabeth Munn. They were baptized at Milton just six days later. Helen was born at Denton in December 1851, daughter of Thomas and Fanny Lovel.

Dick started as a general shopkeeper but after his marriage to Helen at Milton in November 1873 he became a cow-keeper and eventually took over the 'Invicta' Dairy at 11-12 Elliot Street, Milton from his father-in-law.
