Re: Lisburn

Hi Gary, Your family name sort of rings a bell from my time as a telegram boy in Lisburn during the second world war. Did your family have any connection to the family called English who lived on the Longstone, if I remember correctly there was a son and daughter there.??

At the risk of sounding nosy whereabouts are you located?. Have a great day.
