Dear Vikki Lyn and other fellow Clevelands, Hello again from Australia. Some years ago I was a contributor to the Chronicles Magazine and what with a couple of house moves, busy life etc. dropped off the page without really meaning to. Sorry about that. I visited the Netherlands for six weeks earlier this year and was fascinated to see that in the tiny town I visited of Grave which was rescued by the Americans in the 'Operation Market Garden' in WW2 (This is what the movie 'A Bridge Too Far' was about) there were two hotels; one called the 'Poort of Kleve" and the other called the 'Port of Cleve' very confusing apart from the spelling to have two hotels with effectively the same name in one small town. We took the bus and went to the town of Cleve in Germany and there was a lot there about Anne of Cleves, one of the wives of Henry 8th of England. I don't quite know what the connection is to us Clevelands but nevertheless interesting. I am researching my family line back to James and Annastatia Cleveland, a family of trawler fishermen working in the North Sea in the mid to late 1800's. They lived in Hull in Yorkshire, England. James Cleveland was Captain of the 'Emerald' and I have a copy of an old photograph of James and Annastatia and their sons. Best Wishes and keep up the good work. Karen Mary Cleveland
