My Ashby Puerorum Family - a Memory of Ashby Puerorum.


My Tasker and Lawies families come from the tiny village of Ashby Puerorum so I went to see the place in 1971 when I first became interested in tracing my family tree.

There is a beautiful church - St Andrew's - surrounded by a lovely churchyard and I enjoyed searching among the gravestones until I found two for my family. I have not returned there since but it wqold be interesting to see as I planted some dafodills on the graves back in 1971. I wonder if they are still there!
