St Peter Port Guernsey 2014

In July 2014 Christine Paterson and Jenni Ibrahim, two of the original group who met at Loggerheads in 2011, met up again. Chris travelled from her home in France via a family visit in england and Jenni from hers in Australia. They met up on the quay at St Peter Port Guernsey, Channel Islands. They were seeking the the gravestone of Thomas Clifton Alban who died in Guernsey in 1864 and the house his family lived in, La Vrangue, as recorded in the 1871 census. They did not find the gravestone in Candie Cemetery, St Peter Port, though they lacked burial registry information and many of the gravestones were very worn. 

They did discover La Vrangue, the only house in the area of a suitable age.
