Felicity Adair Crump - of Alderney, in the Bailiwick of Guernsey - celebrates her 110th birthday today. She was born in King's Norton, Warwickshire, England on 21 January 1913, and is the oldest known living person in Guernsey and the Channel Islands. Her birthday is the first time someone in the Channel Islands has become a supercentenarian in over 120 years (the last being Margaret Ann Neve in 1902). 

Happy birthday!

Happy 110th birthday Felicity Crump!

What I find amazing is that a supercentenarian resides on a tiny island (Alderney) that is 3 miles (4.8 km) long and 1.5 miles (2.4 km) wide, with a population of just over 2000!

Has that ever happened before?

Happy 110th birthday, Felicity Crump! 

(PS I can’t see the first Facebook post)

Interested in supercentenarians since 27 July 2018.
First supercentenarian I learned about: Kane Tanaka (1903-2022)

Happy birthday!

She is the third supercentenarian to have lived in Guernsey, Ethel Wood being the second.

Christina Morrison (1895-2006) was from the tiny island of Scalpay in the Outer Hebrides, with a population of about 300. When a bridge to the much larger neighbouring island of Lewis was built in 1997, she was the first person to cross it.

Nabi Tajima lived on the island of Kikaijima, which had a population of about 7,500. The validation of their ages has been retracted, but Shigechiyo Izumi and Kamato Hongo both lived on the island of Isen, with a population of 6,500.

One would suggest that Christina Morrison had well and truly earned that right.😀
