Jeanetta Thomas

J(e)anetta Jane Thomas (2 December 1869 – 5 January 1982)[2] of Llantrisant, Wales was a British supercentenarian and was mentioned in the Guinness Book of Records in the 1980s. Thomas spent her youth in London working as a seamstress. At the age of around 40, she returned to Wales to open a drapery shop, which she ran until the age of 98.[15] Thomas was the last surviving person in the UK to have been born in the 1860s. She was also the oldest living person in the United Kingdom from 20 October 1980 until her death, at the age of 112 years and 34 days. She was the last surviving person in Britain to be born in the 1860s.

From the age of 107, Thomas resided at a nursing home at Cowbridge, Wales.[15] A photograph of her, which was taken the day before her 112th birthday, appeared in The Times. Had Thomas lived another six days, she would have broken the British longevity record which at that time was held by Alice Stevenson. Thomas still holds the record for the oldest Welsh-born woman ever, although Welshman John Evans and English-born Anna Eliza Williams (who died in Wales) both lived longer.

Born in Grimsby, Hewison was the fourth child of six born to Will, a timber merchant, and Betsy-Ann Ramsdale. She married George Hewison, a stonemason, in Grimsby in 1905. In 1938 she moved to be with her daughter Frances in North London. Later in 1963 the family moved to Berrynarbor in Devon until Hewison was 105 when she returned to her hometown of Grimsby. In 1990 she met the Queen Mother at RAF Scampton. She also was a supporter of Grimsby Town football club and met the team in 1991, the year she turned 100 and also the year that the team completed a second successive promotion. Hewison was also taken for flights in aeroplanes and helicopters at Humberside Airport. She had enjoyed music since a young child and attributed her longevity to the occasional glass of lemon and port.[18]

Louisa Shephard

Louisa Shephard née Williams (14 September 1898 – 19 January 2010) was, at the age of 111 years 127 days, a supercentenarian who became the last living person in Wales who was born in the 19th century and the Victorian Era. She became the second-oldest Welsh-born woman and the third-oldest person. She was also the third-oldest woman to die in Wales, and the fourth-oldest person. Therefore she was also the youngest Welsh supercentenarian and the only to die at age 111. At the time of her death, Shephard, of Blaenavon, was the third oldest person in the United Kingdom, and the oldest person in Wales following the death on 9 May 2007 of Victoria May Owen, who was 109 years and 335 days. She was one of the fifty oldest British people. She attributed her longevity to "hot milk with a dash of whiskey each evening".[22][23]

Ethel Wood

Ethel Eliza Wood (born 16 January 1901 at St Sampson, Guernsey – 19 August 2011)[1] from Kirby-le-Soken, Essex was a British supercentenarian. At the age of 110, Wood was the ninth oldest verified person in the United Kingdom following the death of 112-year-old Margaret Fish on 12 March 2011. She was one of five children born to William and Lily Wood. Wood trained as a teacher in London prior to the German occupation of Guernsey. Like her siblings, she never married or had children. She moved to Essex in the 1990s to care for her younger sister, Edith. Wood lived in her own home until breaking her leg during a fall a month before her 110th birthday. She died suddenly on August 19th, 2011. If she had lived until December of that year, she would have surpased the only other supercententenarian from the Channel islands, Margaret Ann Neve (1792 – 1903).[1] [2]
