An  E-Mail  for Appleby Heritage


Appleby Magna, Leicestershire, England

Hello Dee
 What a lovely compliment.  Thank you.  You are very welcome to use the pictures from our site. 
I found your site interesting too - I was wondering if any of the Appleby's went as far back as the middle ages when Appleby Magna had its own Appleby's.  They were Normans who took the name de Appleby when they were given the village and surrounding lands, and they lived at our Moat House from about 1166 until 1560.  (The village name itself goes back to Viking times.)   The fuller story is on our history site on the page about the Moat House.
 Best wishes from all our team

The delightful e-mail, above,  was in response to a letter, below, sent to Appleby Magna by Appleby Heritage.

Greetings to Appleby Magna, Leicestershire, England from the Appleby Heritage Association, Elko, Nevada, USA 

May I compliment you on your Appleby Magna website.
 It was my pleasure to make a "virtual" visit to the Villages of Appleby Parish, by way of the Appleby Magna Website..  I enjoyed it very much and have mentioned it on the Appleby Heritage web site, using two of the pictures from your website.  If you have any objection to this, I will remove the pictures, at once.     Please scroll down on the opening page to "New Additions", selecting Potpourri of Pictures and Appleby Magna, England. 
I would appreciate hearing from you, if there are any corrections or suggestions.
