Doesn’t the name Appleton Wiske sound charming? Whether the name truly is charming or not, is open to interpretation, however it does hold a special place for me. You see, it is the place of my ancestors. Many of them lived in this quaint place since the early 1500s.
I combed through maps, historical documents, and old and new photographs, researching my ancestors history, to learn more about the people who have been such a fascination to me. I realized something in the process, we may not have stoned walls around the farm, yet :), but we do have that family ambition to grow our farm as they once did. So, it was settled, Appleton Wiske we would become.
I hope that our work will honor its name.
