And down the road to Yalding

Today was a beautiful sunny day (for a change) and just the day to take a trip down to Yalding, Henry Richard Florey’s birthplace.  I’ve driven through it several times, but never walked around.

Yalding is a village and part of Yalding civil parish in the Maidstone District of Kent, England. The village is situated six miles south-west of Maidstone at a point where the Rivers Teise and Beult join the River Medway.1

    Wow, amazing what turns up! My Great Grandmother was Elizabeth Ann Ackland (Nee Florey).What a shame all this information wasn’t available when she was alive. She enjoyed telling us about her family

    • Hi Phillipa, thanks for your comment! I recently came across the newspaper article about your great grandmother when she turned 102 – amazing woman. Would love to hear any family stories you have! I’ve done a bit more digging on her father, Henry Richard Florey, and will email you. :)
