While reading through older messages I came across much about the Hall and read that it was pulled down in the 1960's. During the decade before, it housed a school - Holt School - details of which I'm extremely rusty about now. I was there during the mid 60's and have over the intervening years missed out twice on a visit to the area.
In those days, while I enjoyed History, I had no particular interest in Jardine.What a shame, for, as I've found out in more recent times (having got the FH 'bug'), that I have a link/connection to a Jardine Family, to be more specific, the same one that built boats in the Rexton area of New Brunswick, Canada.I can not but help wonder if there is any connection between the Rexton Jardines and those of Jardine Hall. While I doubt it, I'd still keep some sort of hope going I suspect.
I'm therfore emphatically interested in all matters relating to these two Jardine 'topics', and am just setting up a forum for the surname Jardine at -
