Margaretting: The Village With A Beautiful Name

Good morning Andrew,
I have communicated with you in the past regarding the Sitch family in Blackmore. I also have family from Margaretting, which I see you do not have a lot about on your website. Have you read the books ‘Margaretting. The village with a beautiful name' by Miss G M Baker? There were three volumes. It was written by my father’s cousin.

Curiously enough I read this trilogy only recently having bought them from a second-hand bookshop a while ago. Miss Baker was born in Margaretting at the tail end of the nineteenth century and the books were published in the early 1980s when she was a senior citizen. For me her childhood memories (in Volume 2) are particularly striking and should be an encouragement to all to write their memoirs.
