Talktalk - your grandad was my uncle gordon. My mum and dad was Jack and Esther and John was my brother. Is your mum Joyce?
I remember you as a baby.

There is a Waterworth family here in New Zealand, they used to farm near Wrightington Hospital.

My uncle had a farm in Dalton but he died many years ago. I don't think it must be the same family.

Rita H - there were several Waterworth families with farms around the Wright intonation / Dalton area.
One aspect was milk delivery - your uncle could have been part of the 'clan'.

I can't remember the name of his farm as I was only a child but after that He lived in Dalton next to the school and latterly in latham hall in one of the gate houses.
