  • Notes 
    • In the 1881Census for Ardoyne John Jaffrey is recorded as crofter and farm labourer on two and a half acres at Hatton of Ardoyne Five children are listed all scholars
      A photograph which appeared in a Scottish publication showed John and his family and described him as a thatcher The photograph clearly showed that much needed roof repairs were underway but I think the publisher made an unwarrented assumption Some tools and other items were gifted to the Museum sometime about 1960 and may have included things used by thatchers giving rise to the story
