Ggamekeeper - a Memory of Kirkham.
My grandfather, Henry French, was the gamekeeper at Kirkham Hall. He lived at Whitwell-on-the Hill and I spent many good times with him. My uncle, Albert, was the postman at Whitwell and my father worked on the railway at Richmond, N.Yorkshire. He had also another brother and sister, I think the brother was called Walter French, he worked in the woods but died of cancer in the middle of the 1950's. Albert French had just one eye as I can remember, and his sister Mary used to be a cook at Whitwell Hall from what I can remember. My mother and father lived at Catterick Bridge Station where I grew up. It would be nice if anybody could let me know if they knew my grandfather. I live in Denmark, as I moved when I was 18 - I am now 70. Hope to hear
