Michael Mitchell writes: My 2x great grandmother was Elizabeth Carter and was born at Errwood Hall 18 Jun 1862. Her father was John Carter who was a butler at the hall in the 1850s. In the 1860 census he is listed as a retired butler, but still living on the property. In 1871 he is living in Castedge and is listed as the farm bailiff.

I am still trying to find more history with this family listed to include photos, but to date have been unable to locate them. Thank you for having this site and if I come across anything useful I will share it with you.

Thanks Michael. I’m glad you enjoy the site. If anyone can help Michael with photos or information, please send a message, and I’ll forward it on to him.
