Thanks to members of the Gugger family

we have this amazing resource

to throw light on our collective history.

The Gugger Documents 2p.jpg
 
John.jpg

Last week I received a second batch of historical documents from John Gugger.

In revealing the contents    

I will this time adopt a

"Lucky Dip" approach;

in contrast to Batch one where I revealed documents in topical groupings. 

Fyansford has long had a close relationship with Stonehaven, e.g. the operation of our local C.F.A. I also notice that there are notes relating to Murgheboluc. Some of the included documents reflect this partnership.

While some of the jottings have, at this stage, little or no meaning to me, I will include them in this bundle as someone in the past obviously deemed them worthy of keeping.

I will not list as single posts but add where most relevant as I proceed through the folders...

Sometimes I will post in gallery form though there might be as few as two items. This allows for maximum enlargement for easy viewing.

Remember to click first image to open gallery and to enlarge for easier viewing. Also check if there is a link.

  • The grape louse (Phylloxera), a microscopic louse / aphid that lives on and eats roots of grapes can infest a vineyard from the soles of vineyard worker’s boots or naturally spreading from vineyard-to-vineyard by proximity. The vineyards were destroyed and vignerons had to diversify to orchards, gardens and general farming.….

More     Jottings

by Norm Gugger

Ca 1988

Jottings 2p.jpg

I attribute these jottings to Mr. Norman Albert Gugger (17/9/1919 - 14/7/2007), father of John and Neil Gugger.

 

I would love to have met Norm as I think we were both cast in similar molds; with a very high regard for detail, writing and history.

 

I see it as a responsibility to respect the words Norm wrote so many years ago and while I provide a link to his jottings in full, I will endeavor to present them as a series of thought bubbles (with added personally-selected illustrations).

I cannot help but think how Norm would have loved to have had access to the modern PC, the internet and the relative ease of self-publishing. I am sure he would have been a prolific writer...

 

apologise for errors in transcription. As some jottings were barely legible, errors in spelling may occur. If you find an error, please let me know - Fyansford.com@gmail.com
