Kia ora

My late mother said that this Williams (see below) - although it could be an earlier one - was a farm labourer on the estate of the Earl of Liverpool. 

If anyone has any information about his estate or anything at all that might help clarify this I would appreciate it.

Hello Bronwen

If you haven't already found Windy Mundy on a map you can see it on Google maps at this location.

You can also see it on an old Ordnance Survey map from about 1900 on the National Library of Scotland web site.

Note that Windy Mundy isn't actually named on the Ordnance Survey map but if you find the property named Ten Chimnies and then look a short distance to the east Windy Mundy is where it shows a Pump.  Don't forget to use Google Street View to get a view of the surrounding area.

Ten Chimnies seems to have been renamed as Berrywood Cottage in recent years.
