The farm estate now appears to be in National Trust hands.

How sure are you that the information you have been told is accurate?
If your informant knew who the father was, then why was not the correct father recorded by Eric on the marriage certificate?

Or is it just rumours and not actual fact?

I do believe it. Eric was known as Handley like his half brothers and sisters and put their Dadís name on the wedding cert. as deceased.I think this was easier and kept the secret. He was always very quiet about his family.
  I donít know if his wife knew.
