Mr and Mrs George Gartshore, residing in the Soar Road, Quorn, celebrated their diamond wedding on Easter Monday. They were married in 1854 at Edgbaston church, near Birmingham. For several years Mr Gartshore served as private farrier to the Earl of Stamford, and later to the Earl of Leconfield, and during Lord Lonsdale's residence at Soar House, Quorn, he worked for his lordship.
Mr and Mrs Gartshore came to Quorn 54 years ago, and have resided in their present house 45 years. They have had a large family of sons and daughters, and despite their years, respectively 83 and 81, enjoy excellent health. They are the recipients of numerous letters of congratulations on their diamond wedding morning.
