Throughout our Parish many family names have disappeared. Yet, they remain - remind us of their once presence in field names. Our elders will say things like, "O so and so lived there in the old days but they went away to foreign places"
Our Heritage Group have decided to research the parish field names. We are talking to the elders and recording what they have to tell us. Needless to say, we are particulary interested in the stories handed down through the generations in the families of the farmers who now work these lands.
When our survey is complete we hope to then take further steps in order to trace where they went, locate their descendants through the use of Technology and invite them back to visit us
