I live in c1550 timber framed house in Hertfordshire. Carved on one beam is <Mau V . Freun $&M 1804>
We THINK that this could be read as <S&M Fruen May 5th 1804>.
We have pretty good records regarding who live in the house back to 1700 and no Fruen is amongst them. Have any of the Fruen historians got any bright ideas? RIB
