  • Its good to see these pictures as iv just remembered my Grandfather saying (I am 82 years old now,) My Gt Gt Grand farther Charles Marlow born 4-11-1849 died 1884 married Mary Ann Harley born 1851 died 1884 all the marlows came from Little Offley or around the area. so I suppose one of these people could be a descendant of a Marlow.

  • We have members of staff at the Green Man in Great Offley that look like these people. Not saying they are offspring, but the likeness is uncanny! Alec Goodwin
