The birth of Peighton King at Ipswich Hospital last week made her the family’s fifth successive generation of females alive today.

Adoring grandma Clare Maddison said the tight-knit family was all doting on her with extra special attention.

“We are a very close family and everyone was very excited,” she said.

“I’d never heard of a family having five generations before - I think it’s quite a big thing.”

Peighton was born to 18-year-old Casey Maddison and her partner Tom King. She follows grandma Clare, 37, great-grandma Dawn Hutton, 64, and great-great-grandma Joyce Fuller, 92.

All five were born at Ipswich Hospital and still live in the town today.

  • "All five were born at Ipswich Hospital"? - maybe, but NOT at the same hospital (as is implied by the wording) as the current Ipswich Hospital didn't exist when the first two were born! I guess those two ladies were born at the old, former Ipswich & East Suffolk Hospital in Anglesea Road?
