      I can remember treading that path so many times as a boy on the way up to the rocks past Tommy Balls and the smell of his pigs

        Who is Tommy Ball? Was he any relation to Enos and Gertude Ball?

        Hello Alison
        Tommy Ball had a small amount of land at the top of the path that lead from Sammy Sampson’s paper shop up the rocks.
        I’m not sure if they were related but I think there might be comments somewhere on Andrews archive that may answer your question.

    My grandfather I believe was called Tommy Ball the peacemaker and he had pigs,but think he had a bigger farm and his house was called Charter House.
