  1. You do love the tholtans, Peter. I knew that Mountain Ash was often planted to ward off evil spirits, but didn’t know hawthorn was too. I have a very old hawthorn at the bottom of the garden which is all that remains of an old hedge line that predated the houses. I’ve always liked it and especially so now if it keeps me safe from those evil spirits…

  2. I came across this sight by accident. Thank you so much for sharing your photos of this lovely island. William Christian was my direct ancestor and his grandson. Patricus (?) came to the United States. His son Robert Christian was one of the founders of the first Presbyterian Church in America, Tinkling Spring, located Fishersville, Virginia. This church is very active and there is a huge bolder with Robert Christian named as a founder. It was so interesting to see these pictures and, again thank you for sharing.
