Where is Stokehall Farm? and when did William die?

Have you tried a google search?

To find ANY info about ANY website...................GOOGLE


Jacki Report 9 Nov 2012 11:33

i have googled it and have pictures of it before and after they made it into flats... just wondering if there were any other bits of info i maybe able to find..

am wondering who is was eventually sold to or who took over.. i have william's will etc, good reading..

realy i was hoping i maybe able to see if William had any family portraits with in the place so i could see what he looked like, but the chances of that im sure are limited or even non existant..

thnx reg.

I would think that's a bit of a pipe-dream..and , being realistic, if there were any 'portraits' in the farm, any photos taken of the rooms would hardly show them clearly enough to know who or what they represented.

You say you have his Will...surely any family portraits would have been bequeathed to his heirs, so you'd know if they existed.

yes u r right , but its nice t have dreams, i wouldnt know Reggie if any exists as i explained before i didnt grow up with my family so any info i have is from years of searching and years of peoples time and help.

im am still going to dream that maybe one day, just one day i may find a picture of one of my family somewhere along the line.......... have a grt day Reggie.
