Buckland Freeholders and a New Photograph

Great excitement at BBHG as our Chairman has received a photograph of a former resident of her home. Meet Henry and Mary Ley and children Mary, George (standing on the right), Walda and Giles. Henry was born at Coles Manning but later lived at Churchgate Cottage, Smale’s Cottages (New Buildings) and Rolle Terrace.

Mary & Henry Ley seated  George on right +Mary Giles and Walda - Sarah Colyer use as wish

We have also added a link to some additional Freeholders’ Lists on our data page. These list the great and the good of Buckland Brewer in the eighteenth century. Scroll down for the Buckland names.
