In 1970 Frederick Heaf wrote down all he could remember about his early family and their history. He titled this The Heaf Saga. This was not discovered until after his death in 1973.
Here it is.

In June 2006 I was contacted by Mr Deans of the Desborough Historic Society who asked permission to use some of the Heaf Saga in a small booklet he was writing.  In return he sent the following pictures of Desborough

Station Road from the East

Station Road from the West

Rushton Hall taken about 1908.  The Hall used to belong to the Treshams who were involved in the Gunpowder Plot.  Tresham was a devout Catholic and the Triangular Lodge was built to state his beliefs.
