We are sorry to hear of the passing of Hilary Lestner of Lyme Regis who was a descendant of the Purser family who once lived at Llanteglos.
Although we never met 'in the flesh', Ruth had many long and interesting phone calls and letters with Hilary over the years -and it was Hilary who put us in touch with Purser descendants in Australia.
