History and Recollections

The Dandy family has lived in Tarleton at least since early in the 16th century. Janet Dandy, who has herself lived in the village for most of this century, is in a unique position to write about Tarleton's history. As well as describing the village's general history, in this book she also shares some fascinating recollections about life here at the beginning of this century.



This publication came about as a result of several requests from the younger generation of Tarletonians. I have lived in Tarleton most of my life, and have always taken an interest in the history of our village. Having been asked on several occasions to speak to various local groups about the history of Tarleton and about my recollections of the village earlier this century, I decided that it would be worth while to commit some of this information to paper in a more permanent form. This booklet is the result.

My only regret is that John Webster, who always showed great interest in the project, and who kindly provided several of the old pictures for this book, died shortly before publication.
