The name carved on the old oak mantlepiece is that of my great great great uncle Charles. It reads "C. Hyde Esq. 1799". He must have carved it when a teenager. The beam was offered to my father in 1961 as a momento by the then owner, Mr Pettit but because of its weight and size, we couldn't transport it home! The beam now resides on the top of the fireplace at Hyde End Farm, the residence of Mr. John Pettit, the aforementioned Mr Pettit's son.
