My grandmother was born in Water lane, the
house is the tiny one ( as they all are), that is demolished and is now
someone's garden extension. Gran was Harriet Evelyn Tansley born 20 Mar
1896, her mother was a Harriet Vickers her father Benjamin Tansley.
I have a large photo of a group outside
the Red Lion, with a character on view through the window with a shotgun,
horses and traps etc. I think the landlord was related. I also have Tilley
cousins all now dead that I know of, but I shall now fire up the other pc
and re read all the history I have of them.
