  • Notes 
    • I knew my grandfather from my earliest days at Baldyquash Cottages What a lovely man he was
      I only knew him for a few brief years This photo was taken in 1900 and the grandfather I knew had a white beard
      Robert Alexander took over as tenant of the family croft at Wartle from his parents He was a kindly man hard working and a proficient carpenter making much of his own furniture From the Moss of Wartle the estate tenants were entitled to cut peat for winter fuel
      Heather was also harvested for house thatch Whatever may be said in its favour for this purpose it did tend to dry out and windy weather had the household out of bed adding extra rapes and weights to hold it down
      (My mother had a lifelong dread of windy nights there after)
