but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Strangeways of Harsley, Strangewayes / Strangways of Melbury / Milbury Sampford
This family's names is spelt in modern times as either Strangeways or Strangways. It appears from the Visitation records that, generally speaking, the Yorkshire branch used Strangeways and, later on at least, the Dorset branch used Strangways. However, cross-references from other sources are not fully consistent with this.
