Quorn Golden Wedding - Mr and Mrs J T S Caunt

Loughborough Echo - 26th January 1968

A couple who have spent all their married life in Quorn, Mr and Mrs Jack Caunt, celebrated their golden wedding anniversary on Wednesday of last week, Mr Caunt (71) and his wife, Emma (76), were married on January 17th, 1918, in Quorn Parish Church by the Rev H Rumsey.

The couple are well-known in Quorn, since for many years Mr Caunt had a greengrocery business in the village. He also kept a smallholding. Although now retired from his business, he still takes a great interest in the garden at his home, 64 Barrow-road.

Mrs Caunt comes from a well-known Quorn family. Her parents, Mr and Mrs William Teagle, were the originators of the Gospel Mission Hall which once stood in Barrow-road. Mr and Mrs Caunt have four sons, three daughters, nine grandchildren and one great grandchild.

A celebration was held for the couple last Saturday at their youngest sonís home at Sileby. It was attended by the family group, who all live locally.

At the party, Mr and Mrs Cauntís sons and daughters presented their parents with a television set. The grandchildren gave a bouquet of flowers on the anniversary day. The couple also received many other presents, cards and bouquets, from friends and well wishers in many parts
