The Billings Families were prominent in the village of Lyn. Water and his sister grew up on a house on the Lyn Road, which is now across from Burnbrae Farms and part of their property. Murray Billings was a cousin of Walter’s and operated a new and used car sales business in Lyn. Walter wrote of his growing up in and around the village, his stories are featured on our website under “Stories by Walter Billings”.

These are photos we have that were donated by the Billing’s Family. Some photos don’t have names, if you know who they are, please email us and let us know.

We also have included additional photos of the Howard Family, Moorehead Family and Wright Family.

For a complete history of the Billings Family you can find a book on-line that will give you all this information at:
