 My grandfather, John Green, rented this farm from the Knightleys of Fawsley from January 1902 to end of June 1919. The land was in both Fawsley (223 acres) and Preston Capes (22 acres) parishes and I have now ascertained where the land was. I think I found all of it.

Between July 1900 and January 1902 he lived at Fawsley Wood Yard and rented land entirely in Fawsley Parish.
