History Group meeting

They will be showing off photos from the past. So if you have ever wandered what your house or road used to look like or want to just see faces from the past then pop along at 8pm.

I have seen a sneak peak and some of thy Groue photos and they make for interesting viewing.

Who remembers the Ale House that was next to the Pub?
No… intrigued by what you might learn?

    Can you put me in touch with anyone who can help with my family research?

    The Caswell family were the village blacksmiths.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    My wife’s great grandmother was born, May 22, 1859 on Barbary Farm in your parish.
    Her name was Ann Gullis, daughter of Jacob and Mary Ann, nee Witts. Jacob’s occupation was shepherd.
    Are there any pictures of the farm or any information concerning the Gullis and Witt families available?
    Thank you for your consideration in this matter.

    I have some records showing the Witt family but no mention of a family named Gullis. If you forward your E mail address to me I will endeavour to collate the information that I have and send it to you.
