Strelley, April 16th 1850
It is Sunday and a day of rest. The day is ideal for photography. Taking my trusty camera and saddling my horse, off I go looking on my photographic adventure.
While walking I meet the woodsman George Garment. We got chatting about the families who lived at the Manor and had been Lords of the Manor of Strelley.
We came to the conclusion that in the past 900 years there had only been two occupants of the hall the Strelley’s and the Edge’s.
Nine members of the Strelley Family have been made Knights of the shire.
The Edge family has had its share of official appointment’s, Alderman, Town Clerk and Lord Mayor.
This picture was taken while I was talking to the vicar, at the front gate of the church, just after morning service.
