Re Irene she is not a relative (that I have found so far) but I have done some research for you : She was still alive in 2012/3 as she was on the electoral register then as “Witham”

Her father was born in Stebbing (grandmother [Elizabeth Byford]) and was in Witham as per 1911 census. In fact I previously traced some of parents family back but as  yet non linked to my family. I believe they are linked but can not prove – a number of Springetts all moved to Rivenhall in the 1860’s from somewhere (I think brothers but have not found link as yet) a bit of a coincidence.  If I find anything / find a distant relative of Irene on Ancestry I’ll let you know.

  1. I read with interest about Irene springett, I think she taught me in infant school in the 1950s, she was a lovely lady, very kind and gentle. I attended cressing primary school from 1954-1960.
    If miss springett is still alive she must be a great age, if anyone has any information about her I would love to know. Regards Debby Byam

    1. Hello Debby. I did send you a reply about Miss Springett, not sure where it is, maybe went by email. But anyway, now we’ve heard from Philip Cardy who seems to know her well,perhaps you might be able to arrange with him how you might best meet her if that is what you would like to do. All the best, Janet.

  2. Irene is still alive and recently celebrated her 102nd birthday. She is still active and regularly attends worship at Witham United Reform Church (formerly Congregational Church) where she has been a member for nearly 80 years. On her 100th birthday she received a congratulatory message from the present staff and children of Cressing Primary school. A wonderful lady who is loved by us all.
