Dear David my family have lived in the village for about
5 generations starting with my great great grandfather on my mothers side, I
have found the site very useful and interesting in my search for information
about my family's history. It brings back a lot of memories from my younger
My grandfather was first listed on the history site as a
shopkeeper in 1910 his name was Edgar Leggett , his son James Arthur Leggett
was also a shop keeper at a later date, I have attached a photograph of James
and his family which I hope you can use on the site. It shows James, his wife
Catherine, son Edgar, daughters Winnie, Ethel ( my grandmother) Catherine and
Amy I am not sure when it was taken but my grandmother was about 14 at the
time which was I think about 1922 or there abouts.
Again thank you for the effort you have obviously taken
with the site. I have spent many an enjoyable hour sifting through the
information on the site.
