The Lyall Family

A couple of us met with Craig Lyall today. The Lyall family are the oldest fishing family in East Haven and Craig himself is one of the last part time fishermen in the village. He has traced his family back until at least 1700 in the Ha'en. Craig's knowledge of old East Haven is really amazing. He knows a lot about old names for various locations in the village. He also has a lot of old papers about the fishing that he has said he will allow us to display in our East Haven 800 Heritage exhibition in the Library on 5th April.
