Roadside Cottage Ainstable

A Memory of Ainstable.

To the lady who lived in the white cottage on the roadside central to the picture of the village of Ainstable: My grandfather lived in that cottage with his grandmother, Ann Dixon, his mother, Mary Dixon and his aunt, Bessy Dixon. His name was Tom Dixon and he was born 5/1897, went to the school in the village, died 8/1966 and is buried with my grandma Susan Margaret in the church along with his direct Dixon ancestors.
My maternal great-grandparents lived on the opposite side of the road in Ghyll Foot. They were the Hoggarths and are also buried in Ainstable church.

With thanks to Joyce Tiffin for this memory of Ainstable
