Memories of Acomb
Hi, I’m trying to find out some information on my grandmothers family..they worked on Holly Hall farm in the late 1920s. Their family name was Gibbison. I’m trying to find out who was the tenant farmer of Holly hall farm at that time and would be very grateful if you have any information on this or could point me in the right direction to find that out. Kind regards Laura
Hi, does anyone remember the Gibbison family who used to work on the farms at Holly hall sandhoe/ acomb in the late 1920s? I’m the great granddaughter of Gertrude Gibbison , whos father was John Thomas Gibbison kind regards Laura
Does anyone have any memories of Wilma Rutherford? I know she lived in Acomb around the 1960s. She was my mother. I would be grateful for any momory no matter how small or insignificant it may seem to you. What was she like? Who was she friends with? etc. Thank you in anticipation.
I remember a Geordie Frazer as we called him, but I seem to remember he was not a geordie. He was a butcher and on the side was a barber - he was a crap barber but it cost next to nowt so maybe you have a link to this..happy hunting.
