A girl named Daisy


Young Pamella Rebecca Egleton 001 Medium Web view

John and Mary Egleton’s daughter Pamela Rebecca, was born at North Elmham, Norfolk on 31 July 1887. Tradition has it that word was received from John Plane, a relative in the USA, that his daughter Daisy had died and he asked that the next girl born be named Daisy. Pamela Rebecca had already been christened but she became known always as Daisy and went on to name her own daughter Daisy.
