Helen Sallis wrote: "He took us up the lane to see the remains of the old original farmhouse which he said was over 200 years old and had not been lived in for over 50 years. Inside it had a high wood-lined mansard ceiling, was very dark and the room quite large. There were several very old holy pictures on the walls - The Holy Family, Mother Mary and Jesus and there was a small lamp burning beside the picture of Jesus. It was interesting that no-one had lived there for 50 years but someone, probably Michael's wife, kept the flame alight."
I have spent a great deal of time and money on this research. Research involves travel and many expenses.
Some research "things to do" are not done for years, because I do not have the money to do them.
