My Grandfather, William Elijah Musk was
born on 3 December 1884, in Redgrave, Suffolk, England.

The seventh of ten children, born to
Henry George Musk (abt 1851) & Elizabeth Kemp (abt 1850)

His sibblings were:
Omendah (1872)
George (1874 - 1951)
Ellen (abt 1879)
Kate (abt 1880)
Rosa (abt 1881)
Alice (abt 1883)
Arthur Robert Henry (1887 - 15/10/1918)
Sophia (abt 1890) &
Lily (abt 1892)

On 5 October 1907 he married
Florence Amelia Potter(1888-1974),
with whom he had 9 children.
George (1909-1992),
Edith (1911-2011),
William (1913-1992),
Leonard (1915-1996),
Bertie (1917-1984),
Reginald (1918-1993),
Violet (1920-2012),
Daisy (1921-2007, my Mother) &
Lily (1923-2016)

During his life time he was a Stockman & Farmer.
He lived and farmed at Common Farm, Dickleburgh, Norfolk, for over 18 years, until he retired & moved with his wife to Castle St, Eye, Suffolk.

On 26 September 1901, he rang the church bells at Dickleburgh Church for the very first time. Over the following years he rang church bells all over Norfolk, Suffolk, Lincolnshire & Hertfordshire.

He died at home on 12 October 1959, and is buried in the chuchyard of Dickleburgh Church.


I was only just 4 years old when he died, but I remember a very warm & loving Grandfather, and his tickling tash!


You cannot see me or touch me
But I'm standing next to you
Your tears will only hurt me,
Your sadness makes me blue,
Be brave, and show a smiling face
Let not your grief shine through,
I love you from a different place,
Yet I'm standing next to you.
