I can't believe its been a year since we exchanged email! Where does the time go???? ............anyway..... I have been contacted by Gaye Cook at She is interested in Oldfields also. She is living in Brisbaine Australia. Her area of interest is Halifax Yorkshire (not far from Pocklington), and while looking at the IGI addendum I noticed several enteries from Derby ( darby they say ). Would you send me info on more precise localities, and I'll email you what info I find. Unless of course you have already done that for yourself.
