I have this information from a book about Fownhope from 1950. I am Jonathan Wood, I was named after Jonathan Haines from which I desend. There is a photo of this man old man who did a lot of business from even pitt as it is named and became master grafter for the LLoyd family who took over from the Wigleys fishery. He was then know as Squire. On the next page there is a photo of a young fit man named William Pocknell who is the newphew of Jonathan Haines and worked for him as master net mender. Jonathan Haines had a son know as Butler (Bill) Haines and a daughter Mrs George Wood. I believe George also had a sister named Julia. Jonathan Haines would be my great great great granddad. I know that Jonathan Haines and his wife are both buried in Fownhope Church as I have just moved there from Hereford.
