Connection - a Memory of Yatton Keynell.

I don't have a memory but I do have a connection. My father's name was Edward and I know little about his relatives in England. But I did find an Edward living in Yatton Keynell in the 1800's at 1 Summer Lane. I have a strange feeling knowing that it was probably my father's great or some great grandfather living in that cottage. His occupation was listed as a Shepherd and had a wife 14 years younger so she might have been his second wife. And a bunch of children. As I say, there is a strange feeling of connection from Canada to Yatton Keystone even though my father was born in Kent and came to Canada when he was 3 with his parents. Perhaps some day I will see the area for myself. I hope so.
