Interesting re Baileys family history.
My own ancesters lived and farmed for many years in Willoughby.
Some slate grave stones clearly still have the the names and dates.they are situated just outside the church porch.George and Alice Wells
There is /was a plaque in the church about a Wells in his will making a bequest to the poor of the parish.An Edward Wells moved from the village to
Seagrave about 1800.
I am now in my early 90ies but a son has all the dates and linage etc.
