For some years, we used to be part of the St Peterís Village History
Tour as the Cramp family. The Reverend Thomas Cramp used to be the
minister of the church on the road to Meergate (the town we now call
Margate). Since the building there was too small to accommodate them any
longer, they split up and formed two new churches: Cecil Square in Margate
and St Peters. Thomas Cramp was the first man to lead this church.|
As part of the Village Tour, Mum played the role of Frances, his second
wife, and I appeared in the role of John Mockett Cramp, who later went on
to become quite a famous man himself.
This picture also shows our two dogs, Mr Jingle (the one lying down) and
Stryder (who has his back to us). They appeared in the Tour, because Thomas
Cramp used to keep a dog. He would sleep in his pulpit and would get up
and start moving around when he thought he had been preaching for too long!
