I remember that once a year in the summer holidays they chose a different king of the island.They sat him on a regal high backed chair and crowned him by tossing a bottle of beer over his head.All that to take on the caretaker duties of the island.for one year.

My grandfather was born in Barrow around 1886 in the Roose area to a Sarah Elizabeth Bracewell, within 2 months she had left him and disappeared leaving him with a family called Martin who bought him up. Can anyone add anything so I can find out where I came from!!
