A Memory of Appleby-in-Westmorland

My grandparents Lol (Lawrence) and Edith Johnston owned and operated the Black Swan Inn for many years. I would love to find out some family history, their son Tom emigrated to Australia in 1964, I was 2 and my sister 1 when we left. I am sure there are lots of people who may have some lovely old stories for us. I am also keen to know a little about my mother's family, my grandparents were Fred & Jean Martin of Appleby, my mother's brother David Martin was sadly killed in a road accident coming home from naval leave, I believe around 1970. Please email me Sally Munro (nee Johnston) anything at all to: magpiejim@bigpond.com.au
