Can you help?
- Can anyone provide more information about the ownership history of Holme Hall after 1700, or any illustration of the Barton family's house there?
- I should be most grateful if anyone can provide photographs or portraits of people whose names appear in bold above, and who are not already illustrated.
- Any additions or corrections to the account given above will be gratefully received and incorporated. I am always particularly pleased to hear from members of the family who can supply recent personal information for inclusion.
