Occasional research into the origins of Ivyhouse Farm have not revealed much about John Smith. The handsome farmhouse bears a plaque recording the date 1717 and the barn (now converted into an attractive dweling) bears this stone. The oft-debated question is this: was that a stonemason's error, or was it deliberate?
Perhaps old John Smith moved on to Yorkshire and brewed the beer in 17581
All the best Pedro
