I am trying to document everything I can find on my Family History. I am now having a close look at my Liddiard tree and adding more details to the family story. The Liddiards are also associated with Kings of Harwell and I'm trying to ascertain how all these Kings are related.

If you should want to join me in the quest to find the story of my ancestors please contact me with details, of how you fit into my Family Tree, and I will give you access to do this. Anyone else can freely view most material on people who are no longer living and contribute to the more general stories. You can comment on anything on this web site without logging in.

Land Farmed by my Grandfather at 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.

This is where my Father, John Green, was born in 1908.

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

Dorothy Walter of Rothwell her Will - 1820

This Will asks more questions than it answers. Why was Dorothy separated from her husband? What was the agreement on the £450? What happened to the £450 as it isn't mentioned in the letters from Frances Green to her brother Abraham Walter? More can be seen on Dorothy's life here.

Charles Abbott of Market Harborough - his Will - 1847

 Charles Abbott was the first husband of Elizabeth Ann Green, the sister of my g grandfather. He died, when they had only been married four years and she was only twenty five. Eleven years later she married Richard Lawrence, her late husband's apprentice.

Elizabeth Ann's Mother Frances wrote in December 1847 "my Daughter as had a great trial in the loss of her Husband but she as been Wonderfully suported and as many kind Friends she goes on with her Business at the Present and she says that she is much more Comfortable than she should be with out it and I wish her to do as she likes for I am happy to say that she acts very Privately? and looks up to him that as Promised to be the Husband of the Widow thay was married only 3 year". So it appears she had decided to marry Richard Lawrence very soon after her first husband's death. Maybe the terms of the will caused her to delay her second marriage.
