The child of George Dale (an agricultural labourer) and Esther Poysden (a servant), Sophia Dale, the great-grandmother of Nigel Horne, was born in Chartham, Kent, England on 15 Nov 18531,2,3,4,5,6,7, was baptised there at St Mary's Church on 1 Jan 1854 and also was married to John Spratt (an agricultural labourer with whom she had 12 children: Leonard, Amy, Ada, Ernest, Lillian, May, Harry Dale, George Dale, Ida, Hilda, Ella, and Reuben) there at St Mary's Church on 9 Nov 187610.
During her life, she was living in Chartham Hatch, Kent, England on 7 Apr 186111; at Tonford Farm, Thanington, Kent in 18712; at The Street, St Nicholas-at-Wade, Kent on 3 Apr 188113; at Shuart Cottage, Podden Street, St Nicholas-at-Wade, Kent on 5 Apr 189114; at 2 Nash Court Cottage, Nash Road, Margate, Kent on 31 Mar 190112 and on 2 Apr 191116; and at Way Cottages, Minster, Thanet, Kent on 29 Sept 193915 when she was living with her daughter, May, following the death of her husband on 4 Aug 1928 which is where she died on 6 Jan 19408,9 (morbus Cordis (i.e. reason unknown - likely heart failure due to old age)).
Mum tells me that Sophia Dale used to enjoy playing cards, but only Dad would play with her. Was taken by Isaac Horne (her son-in-law, my grandfather) to his house from time-to-time by motorbike and sidecar.
