I'd love to make contact.
I'm off to Carlyon in a week or so to find the Vivat house that was burned down.
I also have loads more information about Peter, Alice Ivy Dand (and her family),Ivy Masters, your auntie and Reg Dand a relative. Both Ivy & Reg send me several letters.
I also have plans of the house at Carlyon.
I want to correct the story about Peter Vivat which appears in the Carlyon website.
I'd love to make contact before I leave on July 15 to make sure that what I believe is the correct story coincides with what you know.

Alice Ivy Dand helped my grandmother in her confinement and her sister Mary Jordan Dand adopted my Dad soon after his birth. I will be visiting her grave at Latimer in Buckinghamshire while I'm in England.
