200-year-old recipe book heirloom given to family

A 200-year-old book of handwritten recipes has been given to the author's great-great-great-grandson, 20 years after it was found at a car boot sale. Bob Watson, of Heathfield, East Sussex, bought the 1811 house-keeping book in the 1990s. Intrigued by its contents, he set out to find out more about its author and her family. After piecing its history together, Mr Watson handed the book to Colin Peal, 90, of Castle Hedingham, Essex.

Bob Watson said the book had been handed down from mother to daughter for generations Mr Watson said he immediately wanted the book when he came across it at a Brighton car boot sale, and paid £50 for it. He said: "It's dated 1811 at the front. It's all handwritten and there are a lot of recipes in there. "It's a house-keeping book, really, and it obviously belonged to a large house.

"I went on the computer and typed in one of the names in the book, Mary Weston, and it came up with her last will, from 1847. "It's a really common name, but the will listed the names of several other people in the book, and said she came from Deddington in Oxfordshire." 'Finally paid off' Deddington History Society stepped in, with member Jill Adams constructing a family tree to trace Mrs Lampet's oldest living descendant, Mr Peal.
