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.
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.
Our website now has a Links page. We would be grateful if you could let us know if any of these links fail to work. Suggestions of links to add will be welcome.
Our projects and data section has also undergone some tweaking. This is still very much in its early stages and we hope that this will become a key section of the website.
We have now started a Members’ Interests page for the website. This will be added to frequently so please keep checking back. If you wish to get in touch with a researcher please leave a message in our contact box on the home page and we will pass your message and your email address on to the member concerned.
We are busy filling up our speakers’ programme, though we want to leave some gaps for members’ requests. Pleased to say we have just secured Bette Baldwin of ‘The Hoar Oak Cottage Project’ to come and speak to us, in May, about their research into the history of this Exmoor cottage.
