I have a number of photographs of Eachwick Hall (interior and exterior) that I do not know what to do with. They were probably taken towards the end of the 19Cth. They were taken by Lyd Sawyer (Singleton House, Newcastle) and are mounted on card.
I do not know how they came to be amongst my grandfather's effects but I know his parents lived in the area about 1880.
I would be very happy to send them to anyone with an interest.
My great grandfather who lived there at one time (thought not I suspect long) was Francis Brard Fairley. The 1881 census when my grandfather William was 4, shows them living at Grey St, Newcastle. Francis got married in 1869 and I have been unable to find him in either the 1871 or 1891 census.
A good story that would allow me use the title: 'The Witches of Eachwick' would be particularly appreciated!
