AN ELLON woman has been cheered by the birth of the latest member of a rare multi-generational family.

Christine Holmes contacted the Times to show us a photo which includes five generations of her family including great-great grandmother Elsie Bromley, great-grandmother Christine herself, grandmother Jacqueline Bradford, mother Louise Bradford, and baby Ethan Samuels.

While many will have known their great-grandparents, knowledge of a great-great grandparent is rare.

Speaking to the Times, Christine said: “We realised that it was quite unusual when Ethan was born. We’re all daughters of eachother, which must be quite rare.”

The family live locally, with in Mintlaw, New Deer and Inverurie.
