ANGELA’S PAGES; Halycon Days.

Hello dear Angela. Thank you for reminding me of the good old days when you and I were the two main little girls that usually climbed to the summit of the hill constantly while most others stayed and played along the foot  of the hill!  I remember the huge white horse too! etc: I am about to start getting  ‘your already sent replies’ to me printed here on this page! [Also I am trying to get us on  a private page] for the book asap! As we have said we must try to remember those halycon days as you called them. I will write and reply soon as Possible love across the waves always, Diane.xx                                                                                                                                                 Dear Angela,                                                                                                                                                          Here I am again now with the reply that you sent to me previously.This little memorable but not to pleasant story you told me about,         well from my memory I think that I was nearby when that incident happened! Here is your story of old it went just like this as I write from one of your replies to me.         Your reply; Hi Diane, I do remember Mrs Shaw and Alan Shaw who was a friend of my brother, he had a white horse that terrified me it was so high spirited! I sat on it once and it started to gallop,I slid under his stomach then fell down winding myself.      Never again!   Alan and my brother found it very funny i did not and did’nt go near him again!

REPLY; Angela I still have to jot down your other reply about the more lovelier days of our adventures on the  dear old Kilvey Hill   real soon!

REMEMBERING THE OLD SWANSEA LIGHTHOUSE BEACON WHICH MY ANCESTORS WORKED ON! This was commonly named ‘the old windmill’ thank you for this nice poem from Poets Corner.

The lighthouse beacon The lighthouse with her beacon bright. Standing guard throughout the night. Guiding souls to safety with her eternal light. Somehow the lighthouse beacon makes everything all right. In solitude she stands alone. Her only goal to guide you home. Through crashing waves and howling winds. Night after night she does […]

HEDDON-Surname changes of the Heddon links;

Many people do not realize that the name Heddon changed remarkably over the centuries,however they were the same family linkages! Just like the Dialects /accents/and quite a few other reasons going back in time the Heddon history like many others who spread over different countries spelt the name a little different to where you see it here! But rather than place all the different kinds of spelling for now I prefer to start my Heddon ancestors from Square one. An ancestor of my Heddon family is portrayed on a plaque  at St Paul’s wall in London.There is quite a differance of names there also! A mistake was made either by a sense of hearing the name sounding a little different, or a simple lettering  being accidently  written down thus shown! The name looks like [Seddon] and there is a definate line put through the  name there as a  mistake of spelling,or mistake of hearing? one example could have been that the person heard this  was being sounded like [ it’s eddon] as in  saying it fast sounds like Seddon.! However the amazing thing is  that the crossing out of the name shows a’ line going through the name’ still yet remaining there from years ago. So  here is some interesting past history to be left just as it was through the centuries mistakes and all!                                                                                                                                                                     Another thing that  perhaps makes sense is that one would spell the name as Headon of which I will be noting further along! Over my researches I have found many a different spelling outcome but all from the same lineage!  Another spelling is seen as Heedan.-  Heedin -Heedon-  Heydon- etc’etc;…So never fear Heddon is hear! These spellings became noticeable from the accent of Devon United Kingdom. Also the Scottish pronunciation leans more to sounding  of’ Heed’  rather than’ Hed’ Anyhow so far I have not seen any Scottish roots in my line, well  not as yet anyhow! Like many families branch out for work or other reasons my first knowledge of my linkage did not move to far during the first half of my research, but they soon multiply here and there over the time!  Following back to the ten hundreds is as far as I can see as yet! Again this will not be added here for quite sometime though,  as I need to be obliging the near families who want to know their immediate connections now!       During the next segment I shall be adding little by little over the time of my immediate family relations first.  The names, dates etc; shall be placed on my other site here on [my ancestors blog] A little later!


Margaret, Hopefully you can get onto my blog, as John  from -[So you think you know Swansea] had a bit of trouble there, but he is  kindly trying to fix anything that goes amiss..I would really like my Australian friend Valda to read where you have been while travelling around Auatralia! She had a nasty accident but she will be back here as soon as can..It will be nice for her to see someone from Swansea that has seen so much of Australia. I look forward to seeing your comment here in a few days time.Hopefully my [comment-section ]here, will be able to let you write lots and give you plenty of space there! best of all good wishesto you, from Diane.xx
