New Zealand Completed Requests / Weedall
« on: Sunday 01 February 09 14:18 GMT (UK)  »
I wonder if anyone could help with any information on members of my family who emigrated from the UK to New Zealand in 1922 ?
They were Herbert Weedall and his wife Margaret nee Stewart, both born 1882 in Preston, Lancashire. They had 2 daughters who's names I do not know but born in NZ, 1 stayed in NZ but the other went to Australia.
Margaret died 17 August 1960 in Auckland.

Westmorland / Low Sprint Ghyll.

Could anyone please help with any history regarding -
                 Low Sprint Ghyll,
                 Fell End,
         Now Cumbria (CA17 4LP)

The adjoining barn doesn't appear to have been originally built as a barn, it has dressed window and door lintels and a normal width studded oak door. Also there are quie a few yew trees close to it which seems to have a "church" feel

Thank you, Ken.
