Today I drove past where Great Great Grandad was buried. I thought I may as well pay Jim a visit.

He was the eldest son of a landed farmer in England. I forget where. He left the estate to come to New Zealand. Why would he do that when he would have inherited the farm??

In my mind I have made up a story of him getting the milkmaid pregnant and having to leave in disgrace.

Pity he didn’t have a blog. I could have read more about him.
