When I went up to Marston Bigot Church the other week they had a flower festival on, and I got introduced to Angela Yeoman of Foster Yeoman LTD. She was really friendly and said that the person to talk to about the history of the Marston Bigot Estate was Michael McGarvie. I dont seem to have had any luck tracking down an email address for him yet
I just wondered if the estate records might show a few Silk's as staff and labourers? Worth a try I guess.
lizjames: If anybody has a link to the Silk family that eventually lived in Blaina Gwent or Monmouthshire, the Silk commission for Welsh Devolution was written by a member of this branch of the family. Sir Paul Silk.
