Isn't it interesting how many of these names have disappeared from our population; but are immortalized through the names of places, streets and structures in our country? Any Eyres, Hutsons, Glovers, Hicks, Kendals, McIlhanys, Yarboroughs, or Paslows, Gillets, Rowlands around that you know of? I don't know any; but I am quite familiar with those names because they have survived through land tenure.
