About the Sampler from Nicola Parkman:
"We were so pleased to find a pair of samplers stitched by a brother and sister. The icing on the cake was the additional discovery of the Hubbards’ family history and that the samplers came from Norfolk.
The dates on the two samplers are the date of birth for Emma and Martin; Emma having been born on July 26, 1869 and Martin on October 16, 1870. The samplers were stitched in the year 1880 when Emma was 11 years and Martin 10 years old.
Emma and Martin’s parents were Noah Eli Hubbard, a master mariner, and his wife Emma Christiana (née Callow). The family lived in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk."
