Well I currently live on the farm, and I know it was brought by my great-grandparents but i'm not sure what year that was. I'm going to try and find out more information as we have an old relation (Joan Brean) In the village who will be able to tell me exactly who owned the house, and I can get back to you if you are interested in it.

Hi
It does actually make quite a lot of sense.
We received a letter from Janet Miner in 1982 which she said that she visited the farm two years ago (matching the date of your letter) the relatives she spent the day with were my parents and in the letter she asks for some information on the farm. However since my mother passed away a year ago i'm not sure if we ever replied.
She also says in her letter that she is writing the genealogy of Frank Lewis and his wife but as we never replied I don't know if she ever completed it.
Frank Lewis's sister was my great-great-grandmother so that's how our families are connected. Frank Lewis emigrated to the USA but his sister Eliza Lewis stayed behind and married my great-great-grandfather Henry Merrick.

I hope this helps
