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
