"I just feel so proud. It's a piece of local history as there are hardly any families in the world who can say they have six generations.
"We have been born and bred in Grimsby and I think it's a really good thing for the area."
The family describe themselves as always being "hard working" and "close"
Lily's son, Henry Barley, 78, Harvey's great great grandad said: "My mother lived through the war, survived and has always been a hard worker.
"I've never known her not to work. She had a lot of factory jobs.

"She's so well respected by her family and friends and people the same age as her still refer to her as Nan Fitz.
"She's always been glamorous, she reminds me of a Hollywood film star.
"We have our ups and downs like every family do, but we are close.
"Especially when we have to be, we all pull together. We are never short of stories to tell.
"Little Harvey will be able to go to his great great great grandmother, his great great grandad or his great grandad for answers if he ever needs anything.
"He won't have to use Google and the internet to ask questions, we will all be here and he can choose who he wants to ask which I think is wonderful."
Mr Barley has calculated that spreading down from the oldest generation, there are 35 members of their family who have all branched out.
Henry said: "We are a very big family, there are loads of us. But this is the six generation line that we are really proud of.

"We had been talking about how we would hopefully be a sixth generation family when we found out Stephen's partner was pregnant."
They had hoped they might be the first in the country, but were just pipped to the post by the Mellor family in Bradford, West Yorkshire, after Finley was born Christmas day last year.
"We couldn't believe that on the same day Harvey was born, a six generation family was on the TV. We just couldn't believe it. You can't make it up."
Henry described the family as like "putting oil into water".
He said: "It just spreads. Its incredible to think how families grow so naturally and how we all end up where we do. I think its just fantastic. There's more people to hear my stories."

Stories are a thing the family will never be short of with Nan Fitz and Henry having many of their time during the war.
This is something Steve, his daughter Donna Bentley, 36, grandson Stephen and newest family addition Harvey never tire of hearing.
Steve added: "We have come from good genes. The oldest member of the family made it to just over 100 years old so we hope this continues.
"We have lost family members along the way but to say that we can celebrate being the only six generation family in the town makes us feel really proud."
Harvey's father, Stephen, 18, said of how he didn't really think about the six generation milestone because he was too excited and too focused that he was going to be having a baby soon.

He said: "I think it's really good but my mind was more on the fact that we were going to have a baby with us soon."
The family wished to congratulate the other six generation family who had come forward recently and feel privileged to be joining them in that celebration.
The most generations alive in a single family ever has been seven, in the USA.
