Women at Creed Rectory
Women at Creed Rectory (20120517)
A group of women photographed at Creed Rectory on July 29th 1895. There is no indication of the nature of the group but possibly Mother's Union. The woman standing in the back row third from the left is Mrs Minnie Scholar of Penbetha, mother of Fred Scholar whose memories of Grampound in the 20th century have been published by the Grampound with Creed Heritage Project. Fred's father was Thomas Scholar and Minnie was his second wife, his first wife having died in Devon at a young age. She was born Minnie Treneer at Laity Moor near Ponsonooth in the parish of St Gluvias (Penryn) and came to Grampound, probably in the 1880s, to work as a nurse to the children of Revd and Mrs Vivian at Creed Rectory. Minnie married Thomas Scholar late in 1891 and they went on to have eight children, including Frederick Charles - 'Fred'. She is buried at Creed Church. (Scholar)
