Query about Croston
I have been to Croston today to do a bit of research in the churchyard re my late husband's family the Spiby family, I did find one gravestone. However on walking through the village I was fascinated to see a notice about Little Hanging Bridge(Isle of Man). As I have Manx ancestry and lived there until recently I would like to know what the connection is. Also I saw a reference to Spibeys Corner. Does anyone know the answer to these two queries?
