    I now realise that Chestnut Tree Farm Road Green Silver Green Hempnall was not the farm of Lawson Scarnell yeoman of Hempnall died there 1808...Lawson Scarnell left a will and his farm was to be sold...It was a freehold...Chestnut Tree Farm is a copyhold (leased) farm from the local manor and in 1615 was said to be 5 acres....Lawson Scarnell Jnr farmed Chestnut Tree Farm in the 1840s and 1850s but I have yet to identify the farm of Lawson Scarnell Snr...

    Hello Barrie. Appreciate this is a reply to an old forum posting but I just found it. My ancestors also lived on Turkey Row in what I believe was the same cottage. William Nash was his name and his wife Alice along with 7 children as of the 1911 census. The Nash's had many families in and around Hempnall plus farms at the Great Green and Fritton. There are a couple of Nash's on the Hempnall war memorial and the Charles Nash is the brother of my Grand Father. You mention a photo of the cottage, - can you please share it? Many thanks for any help. Paul
