St Andrews, Aycliffe County Durham, England

  • Description

    St Andrews, Aycliffe County Durham, England. This is the ancestral church of my Father's family. My earliest recorded ancestor here is Gilbert Walker, whose name appears in the Halmota Prioratus Dunelmensis in 1358, when the village was known as Acley (Oak Leah). Members of the same family are still farming in the village 650 years later. My great grandfather x8, moved out of the village in the 1700s for pastures new - all of 10 miles away... There has been a church on this site for 1200 years. Originally a wooden structure, it was rebuilt in stone before the Norman Conquest.
