Steeped in History

How amused I was when my solicitor emailed me an RP and asked me to indicate where the block we are purchasing actually is! I phoned her immediately and we had a good laugh over the phone about how old this plan was, that the roads are no longer named as they are marked on this plan, that the County was spelt wrong so they just put a little ^ and corrected it, that the Parish was completely incorrect and that they Proprietor had to agreed to the subdivision and sign his name -'James Barclay Junior' Click on image to enlarge.

Now I feel even more excited about the history of this little Church. Wondering of weddings, baptisms and no doubt many a Christmas mass were conducted here. Could people have attended James Barclay Junior's funeral at the church too? I am going to make it my business to find out!
