Thought you might be interested in this item:-
My (late) father in law Fred Sturman was born and bred in Crossbank (now
renamed Crossbank House) . He in turn had three elder sisters FLO, MILLIE,
Cath married a man from Weldon, Sid Mace. They
moved to Solihull then back to Market Harborough when they retired ;she
having been a school teacher & he an engineer.
On the reading of her will it was noted that
she left a sum of money totalling over eleven thousand pounds to
COTTINGHAM Parish Church which they had been church members of. (The money
was received by the church in 2003).
I also have account books & a cheque book from
the days when Crossbank was a smallholding.
Best wishes .
