A son at last after 9 Girls: Farmer Colin Rose is a proud - and thankful - man. His family Jinx" has been broken at last. A fear accomplished by that little bundle he has in his arms. The baby's name is Simon Rose. Which reveals the startling fact that he's a boy...a species almost unheard of down at Bright??s Farm in Wiltshire. Mr. Rose and his wife Marion have had nine other children. Nine girls, whose ages range from four to twenty-four. Dad was beginning to feel outnumbered. "He has always longed for a boy," his twenty-year-old daughter Penelope said. "Until now it has always been girls although Susanne, our eldest sister has two boys." Mrs. Rose was a little overwhelmed by the arrival of a son. She had already chosen the names Emma Kate for her tenth child. "I can't believe it after all these year," she said. "It was wonderful when I had two grandsons after all my girls but to have a boy of my own is marvellous. "Simon was born at a maternity hospital at Chippenham, Wilts. Naturally his arrival at the farm in Christian Malford was cause for celebration. The family gathered together as our picture show. Mrs. Rose is at the top right. And Mr. Rose and his son are surrounded...by girls. October 1968 P004688"
