Following our lunch at the pub last month here are the photos I promised.
My Grandfather Arthur Edward Albert Abbott was born at Milborne Port and owned the shop, his first wife died in childbirth and she is buried at St Barnabus Church. He then married Bessie Foote a local and had two children, Isobel and David. They migrated to Caroona in New South Wales Australia in 1912. The photo of the shop would be about 1910 and the other taken in Australia about 1925.
These may be of interest to you and could be placed in the pub for the interest of the locals.
If you want any further info please email.
