Robert Pyle was my Great Grandfather.
He was born in 1847, Thornage, Norfolk.
The forth of five sons born to Benjamin Pyle (1808-1875) & Sarah Horne (1815-1871)
His siblings were:
He married Mary Jex (1846) on
22nd October 1871, Thornage, Norfolk.
They had 6 children.
May Emily (also k/a Mary, 1872)
Robert W (1876)
Olive Mary (1877) &
my paternal Grandmother)
For most of his life Robert was a Metal Planer.
The UK 1881 census shows him as aged 34,
living with wife & 6 children,
at Street, Holt, Norfolk.
Robert died around 1901, as the UK census for that year shows him living in Elswich, but his wife is shown living elsewhere as a widow with her children.
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and the date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who cares
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.
