"Lancashire leaves"

 

Where my family history and traditional poetry collide

Welcome to "Lancashire leaves”.

 The name as it were, “grew” during planning of the site and research into my family history.  I would say that in general most of our families’ histories hold a “fable” or “legend” that has been passed down, sometimes contorted or perhaps mistold.

 

So, embarking on my journey with the knowledge that somewhere in my tree was a “Greek” connection on my mother’s side and possible Scot on my father’s, I began to dig, assuming as one may that the remaining antecedents would be of local East Lancashire stock.

 

 How wrong I was.
