GUEST,Ebor Fiddler Folklore: Names of Farms (45) RE: Folklore: Names of Farms 03 Jun 18

Don't forget that here in the UK, separate farms only came about after the Enclosures in the late 18th / early 19th centuries. My grandmother's family had Galley Gap (there was a crossroads nearby at the head of a valley where there had been a gallows), Spofforth Haggs (woodland on a slope, near Spofforth) and Scalla Moor. Then they moved on to the Harewood Estate, where most of the names would have been chosen by that family.
