West Orchard Farm, Preston Capes

 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.

The Will of John Mutton of Market Harborough who Died in 1808

 This will helps explain who Aunts Bradshaw, Mawby and Cooke are in the letters written by Frances Green to her brother Abraham Walter in America. It is interesting in that it doesn't mention any sons of John. Details of John can be found in my family tree.
