How old is that cottage? 
While searching on Google the other day, I came across pictures of the cottage that my 11th Great Grandfather, George Strong, lived and worked in during the 1500's. He lived and worked in Chard, Taunton, Somerset, England. The thatching probably isn't original but you know the stones that make up the walls are. Finds like this keep me going back for more genealogy. My imagination is going now and I'm wondering what the clothes looked like that Great Grandpa Strong tailored. Google, here I come again!


  1. Ooohhh, I LOVE it! I'm assuming you captured this picture while using Google Earth or Google Maps in street view? (My latest addiction!)

  2. Lisa, I would love to find it on Google Earth! I'm looking for an address to the cottage but haven't found one yet. I'm not giving up, though!
