The Bagshaws of Eyam and their progeny
Fancy risking the plague, dying in a lead mine, or listening out for Thomas Bensons's ghost. All available in olden-times Eyam. At the top of a fairly big hill, this didn't keep the plague away, but if you were from Eyam, you knew where was home. Children and their offspring may have gone off to Birmingham, Liverpool, Salford, Stoke and Sheffield, which they did. But they mostly kept in touch. We found a Sheffield lady on her deathbed wrote to our Carlines in Salford begging for any news of Martha (one of the Carrs). This was in 1911. I've not added much of substance to this grasp of events.
