Sunday was in Carter country. A walk around Shoulham Thorpe (see photos) and lunch as usual in a pub. This time in Shouldham, the village that Robert Carter came from (though he also seems to have spent some time in neighbouring Shouldham Thorpe)
Sang happy birthday to michael
Seeing names on Tombstones is always intersting but a highlight of this day was meeting more Carters. Possibly not related and if they are its 7th or 8th cousins or further. BUt when Bevan was booking us in for lunch he was told thre would be another group of Carters from a different nearby village. We met them after lunch. Parents, daughter and a son-in-law. THe latter at first didn;t seem interested in fact he looked like he'd rather be somewhere else! THe dughter too wasn't overly involved but gradually they joined in as we talked farming, asked lots of questions about vegetables we have been seeing and various farming practices. The ladies got keen when the discussion turned to Yorkshire pudding. Someone even got a recipe (where is it??) We were told if it was lfat at first try that was common and to keep on trying!
