Mrs. Cunningham's Memories

Betty Cunningham was born down the back lane (now known as West Street) in 1916 and has lived all of her life in Ecton. Betty’s mother and father also lived in Ecton all their lives and their families before them. Betty is the oldest of three sisters. One sister lives in Earls Barton now and the other lives over the road.
