Over the years Jill Newton helped many off you find and sell properties in both Brittany & Normandy;was recognised as one of the "original" agents and having started up the British market in central Brittany back in 1986.
In Cornwall she was known for her historical books like "The Furry Dance" & "Flora Day" amongst others.
Many of you became good friends over the years, but unfortunately Jill passed away last night, after being cared for by Poldhu Nursing Home in Cornwall for the last several years having suffered from multiple stroke. She died in her sleep at the age of 71 and was going to be 72 in August.
