As I was sat thinking about how I was going
to construct a page on the history of Greenheyes Farm, It occurred to
me that it would be interesting to also research the history of the
As with the archaeological history of
the farm the field of genealogy is not something that I can claim to
have any real working knowledge of, So please be patient with me as
I blunder through.
This is an extract from inside cover
of our family Bible. It gave me some idea as to where to start.
Apart from the obvious starting point of
my immediate family, I was fortunate to be in possession of the
family bible. Inside the front and back cover had been recorded
the names (although not all by far) of family members.
After a careful perusal of the available names
and dates I found that I could create the skeleton for a family
history dating back to 1774 to one Mathew Smallwood.
Now the hard work, I have to try and put some
meat on the bones. SEE BELOW you will notice that there are many
gaps for me to fill. I hope to have information on my wife's side
