Peter has asked in an email: Do you think we could ever find out about the Dales and whether they were descended from a race of kings also? Mmmmm, when you say "we", Peter, what did you have in mind? We'll have to see. I did interview Auntie Joan and Eleanor for their knowledge of the Rogers. And I got as much as I could from Dad about the Dales and Gibbons. Maybe I actually want to get a life instead of dwelling on past generations. Nah, probably not!
Want more information on Bewcastle while you are waiting with baited breath for more about Goodfellows and Forsters? And you can read the poem Lochinvar by Sir Walter Scott to see mention of the Forster clan.
