    I am writing a book about a great great aunt Hannah Munby (1833-1909). I am a long way away (South Wales valleys) but am coming up to Shifnal next Wed afternoon (17th September) and staying one night at Haughton Hall hotel. I would love to be able to talk to someone who knows Shifnal and Haughton fairly well, particularly in the 1830’s/1840’s. Hannah had over 40 first cousins and most in Shifnal area (Cullwick/Owen/Smallman/Sherratt/Yates are main surnames). Her Cullwick grandparents (William and Susannah) lived in a row of cottages in Haughton village till both died in 1838. Her maternal grandmother Anne Owen lived in a little cottage on the way to Haughton that had a yew tree in garden and a little bridge nearby. One of her cousins (Lizzie Yates) lived in the Stone House down Aston Road and an aunt (Sarah Smallman lived in “widows house” about 1870.

    If anyone phones me, have free phone calls so will ring straight back (01443-430781). John.
