Giulio and Ann Lafranchi lived at Deep Creek. This photo is of a hut that the Lafranchi boys built around 1930’s.
It’s built next to the original site of their home. The house was burnt down early 1900’s. The Lafranchi boys used the hut on weekends and holidays to go hunting. The hut is still there. I took this photo in November 2007.
Blampied is not far from Eganstown. The Hotel is still there, I had a meal there in 2007 and it was delicious. Andrea Lafranchi’s family ran the hotel.
I’m still trying to find the conection between Andrea and Giulio. Andrea snubbed Giulio. Their children grew up being told they were cousins, but Giulio’s family were the poor Lafranchi’s which Andrea didn’t associate with!!
