Isle of Axholme, Lincolnshire

Published: November 6, 2005    Last modified: November 1, 2016

Descendants of my great grand aunt Sarah ALLEN 1862-1943 are linked to the north Lincolnshire villages of Owston Ferry and West Butterwick. This area, the most north-westerly part of Lincolnshire, is more commonly known as the Isle of Axholme, due to it's location between the rivers Trent, Nidd and Old Don.
