Historical Forms

  • Greenland 1842 White 1852 Padley


, Greenland 1842 White, 1852Padley , since the name has not been noted till the mid 19th century it is tempting to associate this with Greenland Fm in Great Limber, PN L 2222 . There , it was suggested that there was a link between the Great Limber name and Grimsby whaling activities in the early 19th century , though no such historical connexions between Grimsby and Great Limber have so far been discovered . The same is the case with Waltham .
