In search the Ebbott family Ancestral Home

There are two quite substantial houses on what was once the Westcott property.  Tim owns the small farm next to both of the houses which are now owned under separate titles.  Tim explained that of the two houses that could be my ancestors’ potential home that he felt that the “Lower Westcott” was probably the one most likely to be the Ebbott residence. Upper Westcott is lot newer in building style.



Driving into the settlement you pass the original farming land of Westcott now owned by Tim Hopper, the next structure on the right is unknown but next to it is Upper Westcott and then further on and at the end of the road on the left had side is Lower Wescott, which is now owned by Tom and Gloria Gunn and no longer part of the surrounding farming land.

In my next post we’ll look at the outside of the Lower Westcott, which has been lovingly restored by its current owners who were only to pleased to show us around.
