Sorry, no etymologies found.
THE road through the park ran, at the point of the first rendezvous, between an avenue of horse-chestnut trees, which in season no doubt provided a supply of conkers for the patrons of the children's playground on the left, but which now shaded the spectators of the cricket match in progress on the sports ground to the right.
There is still an annual Tumbling Bay Ball and Dinner in May, and a cricket match on the island in which it is traditional to lose the ball almost every time you hit it for six, or even for one.
