Telephone conversation between Stuart Kennington and Jenny Pierson on 25 September 2008: This Caterpiller Fifteen was originally owned by the Neal family of Lucknow at Tetley Brook, Seddon. Ranji Neal married a Kennington and when he took over the farm from his father he bought a new tractor and sold this one to his brother-in-law Bernard Kennington Senior. This was in the late 1940s early 1950s. Bernard Kennington senior was a brother of Bert Kennington, father of Stuart Kennington.
