I have an old book called “Stanhope on the Epistles”, with a number of inscriptions. At the back of the book is a kind of diary entry: 'The harvest for the year 1818, I began reaping July 28th and I finished the whole on 25th August, namesly wheat, barley, oates and beans. What is remarkable [is that] I carried my clover seed on 25th August. It was never known to be better than at that early period. Signed Robert Smith Senr, Faulstone Farm, Bishopston.' Elsewhere are two other inscriptions, 'The gift of Miss Evans to Robert Smith Junior, March 23rd 1809' and 'Robert Smith Junr, 1823'. What can you tell me about Faulstone Farm, the Robert Smiths, Miss Evans, Stanhope and so on?

What is the history of Cues Farm in Bishopstone? Who was the first and last "Cue" to own it? When did it cease to become a working farm?
