Many early Bedlingtons were named Piper.It referred back to a chap who lived near Rothbury,William Allan,a well known 'Piper'.

That explains it. seems from Susan James-Hemsted's post that Piper was in use around the area. Short form of the pedigree name perhaps.

Canny Lass might be familiar with Margam Castle.

Thanks John. I wasn't familiar with just this case but with several others like it. An elederly woman's statement of having been born at a certain palace and the son of a certain prince, and adopted by the palace carpenter springs to mind. That story was deemed to be "delusional thinking".

@John H Williams - doesn't answer your question on the CBC letter but a member, Daren Mazzie, of the Bedlington remembered Facebook group replied to my posting with this newspaper cutting. Daren did say that he got access to the cutting via a group he subscribes to but didn't say which group only that the date of the  newspaper is 1868.  

 

@John H Williams - no info from the local Facebook groups after I posted your question + CBC letter. Naturally if there is ant news/Info posted I will add it into this topic.

Thank you for trying. Maybe there is nothing else,who knows? Every now and then,something not previously seen turns up. As we say in Wales, Nadolig Llawen  a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
