Cottage Up Cerne Wood, Up Cerne
« on: Thursday 18 January 18 16:10 GMT (UK) »
My gt gt grandfather George Foot was woodman/keeper at Up Cerne. He died in 1923 and lived in the cottage in the wood. The cottage was demolished with several other homes circa 1960's by the owner of the estate. I have never seen an old photo of the cottage and hope that as it was near a footpath and as it was around after his death for a number of years, then someone may know of a picture. There was a well next to the house and adders could be a nuisance. A newspaper cutting advises that he killed 6 on one day.  George had 15 children and 3 wives and any contact with descendants of those families may be mutually beneficial to our research.

Many thanks Mark. Perhaps there are estate records although privately owned.
