    Notes 
    • Correspondent Michael Gunn writes:
      farmer, business woman, parent. When her husband Ben died, he left assets all over the countryside and a load of debt behind. She compiled and sold the assets (bits of land, a caravan, obscure machinery, etc) she wouldn't need, and began paying off debt. As the Banhams (husband's family) farmed a stretch of land their family had dyked/reclaimed over 400-500 yrs, their claim on the land was only ever 6" deep, not the WHOLE farm they developed. Babs went after the government and they received the deeds for the hundreds of acres they'd made. She also started a business of tearing down old stone buildings in Great Yarmouth that were no longer wanted, trucked the rubble to their farm, crushed it, and sold the product back for roadwork. Meanwhile, her sons farmed the land (Broad Farm on Boat Dyke Lane in Acle, Ash Tree Farm on Acle New Road). She was quite a force to be reckoned with.
