Comments Greetings from across the pond. I have researched my genealogy to Quorndon and Rearsby. A relative, Pryor Richardson was apparently born in Rearsby and moved with his family to Quorn. If there are any Richardsons still in Rearsby or Quorn and happen to read this, please send me an email. I'd love to learn more about my family.

Comments Hi all, was hoping somebody would have remembered the old camp. Even trying to find photos of the camp is almost impossible. Maybe these will strike a cord with some body: we were there when a car hit a tree between Rearsby and the camp; the head lights were stuck in the tree for months, or the house that was hit by lightning - our house, My dad was in the RAMC. I believe he was the staff sergeant at the base we moved from the camp to Longmoor camp. If anybody knows where to find information please inform me. The absa e-mail address is obsolete. Many thanks.

Comments I grew up in the village at 33 Mill Road and also at 1A Gaddesby Lane. Dropped by to see if Gramps' (Euan) pictures were still in use. Paintings of the pack-horse bridge, church etc. I think his painting is still used on the 'Tryptich'. Happy to receive emails from those who knew him.
