Oh thank you RedMystic for the lovely update - such a surprise to see the great pictures. 

It is a credit to everyone involved that the grave was found and the headstone installed - as well as it being kept tidy now.  It would put some graveyards in the UK to shame.

Having to take a gun to a graveyard is something new to us here in Britain!

Thanks for the offer of the pics - I'll message you.

Thanks again for the update.

Have been able to add in all the info provided for Harmans - thanks very much Trish and Martin.

Not got Ancestry membership live at present so cannot go delving much there.

Still unsure what the HYDE connection is but as Kezia pops up in the Harman tree too it may be a family name - not that common.

I've sent you a private message Martin so if you want to give me your email I'll invite you to snoop around my tree on Ancestry.

I'm on Find my Past for now so may do some more delving there.

Thanks for inspiring me again - its been a while since I did this line.

Thanks for all that Trish - carry on getting carried away!  All interesting and I'll see how they work into my tree.  Much appreciated.

I'll send Martin a message instead.

Hi Martin.  Thanks for the reply.  George would have been Joseph's brother and my husbands 3xgrt uncle!

I have quite a bit on an Ancestry tree but nothing more on George's line.  If you want to send me a message we can chat about things.

Family History Beginners Board / Re: Garness Farm, Pembrokeshire

Sorry to be really late arriving at this post.

Garness Mill (down past the old school as you say) is one connected with the Oriel family.  As is Garness Farm which is located slightly SW of the Mill but access via a different road which is called Ledgerland Lane.

These Garnesses have, as far as I know, no connection with the Garness that is between Marros and Pendine.  No idea why the names should crop up like that but I suppose its like 'Rose Cottage' which can crop up in any village - though why 'Garness' I have no idea.

The two in Crunwere parish - which have now spawned to four - which are Garness Mill, Old Garness (which is the original Garness Farm), a new build Garness Farm and another dwelling called Little Garness - took me a while to get my head around that!

According to B G Charles' Place Names of Pembs the name 'Garness' was first found in 1712 and spelt GADENES, but recorded in 1723 as Gardener's Mill and 1726 as Garness Mill - he thinks the earlier forms may mean it was named after a person.
In 1787 Land Tax show a property called Garness Rocks.
The 1841 census mentions Garness Mill but by 1851 two properties are shown.

Of course as the book only covers Pembrokeshire this does not help to see how the Pendine Garness originated!

Oh that's good. 

We started about 17 years ago to hold a little service in our village hall for our four lost men - three from WW1.

Oh will do Carol - have some others to add as well.  thanks for the link as I didn't know about that.

Thanks Carol, that's great.  He died in 1917 so having it for this year's service will make it extra special.
