Yealand A Beautiful Village - a Memory of Yealand Redmayne.

I lived in Yealand from 1947-52 when I came here to New Zealand with friends at the age of 17. Having little educaton and the war years I decided to come to New Zealand to farm.
I attended the Yealand school and then left to work for John Wilson on his farm. Those years are most memorable and I have fond memories of them. It is a beautifull village. I believe there are not so many farms operationable there these days. I also knew Saria Butler, mentioned in another person's memories, who lived at Manor farm. I knew the Grays at Old Hall who also came to New Zealand. I live and have farmed in the North Island of New Zealand where I met my wife and farmed at Rongotea.
