Original message (posted by priscus)

The house in which I lived was called 'Farthings Cottage'. I had at first assumed that it was a twee name given by the party doing the conversion, maybe a decade or so earlier than my time there.

Doing some research, at a later date, I discovered that one of the cottages incorporated had been the fourth ings cottage,
and just as with our money, usage has transformed 'Fourthings' to 'Farthings'.
