The World New Oldest Twins

Congratulations to world oldest twins, Ena Pugh and Lily Millward. The Sisters are claiming the title of the oldest twins in the world; at 100 years and nine months. Farmer's daughters Ena Pugh and Lily Millward were born on January 4 1910 before the outbreak of World War 1 when Queen Victoria's son Edward VII was king. The pair still live in their own houses, still meet up for weekly shopping sessions and chat on the telephone virtually every night. Guinness World Records gave them the honor after checking their birth and marriage certificates. They take the mantle from French twins Lucienne and Raymonde Wattebled, who were born in 1912.
Ena was born first on that chilly day in January 1910 with Lily a few minutes later in their family farm cottage in the tiny village of Garthbrengy, near Brecon in mid-Wales. Their parents Charles and Laura Thomas had ten children (including twin brothers) but Ena and Lily are now the only survivors. Ena married railwayman Ivor who died more than 20 years ago. She still lives in her country cottage where she raised their three children and now has ten grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Lily lives in a smallholding and has been a widow for nearly 20 years after the death of husband Evan, a former timber merchant. She had two children, five grand-children and nine-great grandchildren.

The sisters live just a dozen miles away from each other in the fresh air of the Welsh countryside; Ena at Erwood, near Builth Wells, and Lily still in her home village of Garthbrengy, near Brecon. The family heard on the radio that two sisters hit the headlines in France for being 98 last month. Raymonde and Lucienne Wattelade, who are officially recognised as the world's oldest twins by the Guiness World Records, live in Saint-Georges-de-Didonne, south-western France.
