My Old Chair with Memories – Hayley Hardy, Penn

“This is my daughter with her great grandpa’s chair. It was his grandfather’s chair before him. He died in 1950 at over 80 years old, so he was born in the 1870s. We live in Penn and my Grandpa (Alan Keating) grew up in Chesham, his father (George Plested) grew up in Chesham and later Ley Hill Common – he was the original owner of the chair. We believe it was locally made.”
