As a postcript, when I was a kid we had a farm called Break O'Day a couple of miles from the Break O'Day junction mentioned in the link in the first post.

The biggest thing to happen there was probably when electrification came through in the early 1960s and a whole room could be lit from a little bulb on the ceiling rather than the vague light from hurricane lamps or the brighter hissing light of a Tilley lamp.

And, No, I didn't know Bill Roycroft, but a lot of the people we knew did, and they held him in deservedly high regard.
