The weather on Saturday was obviously going to be hot and sunny so we quickly changed plans and decided to visit Newby Hall and Gardens, near Ripon, North Yorkshire.

Later in the afternoon and wondering what to do next we decided to eat at a pub restaurant somewhere along our route home. We had a couple of hours to spare before the pubs opened and realising Crayke could not be far from our current location I set our recently acquired 'satnav' to guide us to the village of Crayke. Negotiating all the minor roads around North Yorkshire is usually a nightmare but the 'satnav' proved its worth and 30 minutes later we were standing in the grounds the Church of Saint Cuthbert, Crayke.

The England and Wales Census 1881 records Daniel JACKLEN (Daniel JACKLIN 1862-1953) living and working at Rookery House, Crayke. I have little idea how or why Daniel came to be at Crayke.

Since I had not planned to visit Crayke, I found myself in the somewhat frustrating position of being able to recall the name of the property (Rookery House) but not its location, other than it being on the outskirts of the village. Normally I have some digital Ordnance Survey maps stored on my PDA but on this occasion not the one I required. Only later did I realise that I had twice driven past the end of the lane which leads to Rookery House. In retrospect I suppose I should have asked one of the local villagers.
