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.

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
