Trails lead to secrets!
One of the things I love about family history is where a trail can lead. Another is discovering how things join up and make sense of what you already know. And one of the best ones is when the trail leads to the discovery of secrets...!
Here's Tom (my great uncle, Thomas James Diggory) on the left in his footman uniform. Sadly I don't know who he's standing next to, or where this photo was taken. Was it at Wergs Hall, where he was employed on 1911 census?
I've been finding out more about Tom's employer at that time, Col. Thomas Edgecombe Hickman, and about Wergs Hall and its history.
And some interesting links have emerged which tie in with a family story about clandestine meetings during WW2....
More to be revealed as I tie the pieces together!
