Off to Meet a Cousin

We're off to Dorset to meet Margaret, Mike's 3rd cousin once removed! She has flown over to the UK from New Zealand with her husband Roger and we'll be going Hoare hunting!

Edward Hoare was Mike's 3rd great grandfather and he was Margaret's 2nd great grandfather. The family lived at Nutshole Farm, Chard, Somerset back in the 1890's. Margaret and Roger are booked into a Guest House in Chard and we're staying at the Charmouth Camping and Caravanning Club Site which is in Dorset. There are plenty of churches around and so we're hoping to find a grave for Edward and his wife Amelia.

Home for a week ...
