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.
