SUMPTON - BARKER
Another wedding of considerable local interest was that of Mr. Thomas SUMPTON, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. SUMPTON, Great Broughton, and Miss. Margaret BARKER, daughter of Mrs. and the late Mr. M. G. BARKER, of Cockermouth.
The bride had been a Sunday School teacher at All Saints for some years and among the numerous gifts received was a lovely half set of Dalton china from the teachers.
The ceremony was performed by the Rev. J. DAVIDSON, at All Saints, on Saturday in the presence of a good number of friends. The bride was given away by Mr. Joseph GRAVE, cousin.
The bride was becomingly attired in an ankle length dress of neutral satin and lace and carried a shower bouquet of pale pink tulips and asparagus fern. Her hat shoes and stockings were to tone. The bridesmaid, Miss. Hilda GRAVE, a cousin, wore flowered ninon with coatee and carried a shower bouquet with cream tulips, her hat and shoes being to match. She also wore a necklet of pearls, the gift of the bridegroom.
Mr. William BENSON, cousin of the bridegroom, was best man. A reception was afterwards held at the home of the bride.
