Me and the 'Pig'
Me and the 'Pig'
Mrs Simpson brought out a block of 'pig lead' to show me what the local miners produced back in the day. Little did I know at this time that most of my Ward ancestors were lead smeltors who actually owned and operated smelting mills nearby in Clints and Whashton.

Mrs. Simpson, the postmistress at Marske in 2009
Met this kind lady in Marske. Someone told me if I wanted any historic information about the area she would be the one to see. She was indeed a gold mine of information (or should I say lead mine) ;)

Orgate Farm
Orgate Farm
First glimpse of Orgate. At the time I knew my ancestors had lived at Orgate, but wasn't sure if this house would have been around back in 1639. But it felt amazing just entertaining the thought that this was the home of Ralph Warde de Orgate, my 8x great grandfather!

Orgate House
The place had a bleak, yet wild and rugged appeal, accentuated by the fact this could be my ancestral home!

Orgate House
Orgate House
How long has this venerable house been perched in this rugged landscape, its windows peering out over the comings and goings of an equally rugged people? Decades? or centuries? Oh if only the walls could speak and tell me if the voices heard within them were those of my ancestors, Ralph Warde 'de Orgate', his wife Eden, and their firstborn son Simon.

Peters, Mike
Mike was our 'Mac specialist' and we didn't know it at the time but we were second cousins once removed. Sadly I only discovered this when I read his obit.

Road to Skelton Hall
Road to Skelton Hall
That's one powerful looking bull! I think the breed is Blonde d'Aquitaine, impressive animals, especially in such a beautiful setting as Skelton Lane.
