The Story So Far

The People's Friend - - Heritage -

The Bell Inn is home to the MACGREGORS. SANDY runs the inn with his wife ETHEL and daugh­ters AMARYL­LIS, DOR­CAS and BETSY.

Dor­cas has eloped with ADAM WHIT­LOCK, who runs his fam­ily’s pot­tery as his fa­ther ELIAS is ill. The pot­tery’s fore­man AL­BERT con­fides in Adam’s sis­ter PENE­LOPE that he is wor­ried about the fu­ture with Adam run­ning things, and Pene­lope re­turns to the pot­tery to work on her new range of prod­ucts.

En­gi­neer KIT CH­ESTER­TON is Sandy’s il­le­git­i­mate son. Sandy met Kit’s birth mother, MA­RI­ETTA, in Ja­maica be­fore he was mar­ried. When Sandy re­turned to Ja­maica to marry her, he was told that Ma­ri­etta and the child died.

Ethel and her daugh­ters agree to keep the fam­ily se­cret, but Amaryl­lis lets slip to her beau, SI­MON BALDWIN, that Kit is her brother.

Amaryl­lis’s friend NOAH PENDLE­TON has spot­ted signs of il­le­gal traders in the cove, and he sus­pects Si­mon has been buy­ing con­tra­band.

When Ethel vis­its the lo­cal store, she’s con­fronted by friends and neigh­bours. They’ve found out that Kit is Sandy’s son!
