Corinne Hursk from United Kingdom
Delightful website discovered when looking at places my ancestors lived and worked. William Hursk was baptised 1820 in Boxted, Mother Sarah, but some documents say he comes from Nayland so thought I'd take a look. My thanks to those who take the time to share all the rich knowledge for us all to see.

Have stayed in Nayland a couple of times whilst doing a bit of follow up to my family, who came from the village, absolutely beautiful!
Has anyone got any knowledge of the Gillingwaters who lived there in the 1800's?

In tracing the Warren line of my Burrows family, I have found a John Warren Of "Corlie" in Nayland, Suffolk. He died in 1576, as per his will, proved 5 June 1576. He calls it "Curlie," He "deliver by surrender to John Prentise and Robert Patton to the use of his eldest son John."
If anybody has information about Corlie or Curlie, I would be very grateful to learn more, even just the location. Thank you.

Thanks for the HMS Anthone Castle picture. I sailed to Canada in 1945 on this ship as a war baby with my Mom and Dad. Dad (Carl Banks)was a Sargeant is the RCAF who served in the middle east from 1943 to 1945.
Mom was from Exmouth Devon and served in the WAFS during the war.

Hello Rosemary Knox (If you read this) I came to see you a few years ago regarding my Burrows ancestry to which you were very helpful.
My GGG Grandparents lived at Goody's Farm in the mid 1800's (I have been inside before the re-vamp) and were married at St Mary's Church in 1846. I still have the bible given to Sarah Fowns (Burrows) in 1836 and signed C E B (Charles Birch - Vicar). I visit Wiston regularly,it seems to be the place I go to collect my thoughts.
Also, I was married in 2006 and had the marriage blessed at St Mary's. It was like coming home!
All the best with the site.

KATHLEEN CRAIG from United Kingdom
I recently visited Nayland after fifty years. Unfortunately I could only spend two days but I hope it will not be long before I return. I was a Nannie to The Redman Family whose parents lived at Alston Court and as they were a military family we stayed there in between `postings`.I did not have much time to make friends in Nayland but I did belong to The Girls` Friendly Society and we put on a play locally. Mrs Whiterod was the cook and Mr Greenwood the gardener. Mr and Mrs MacLeod and daughter Margaret lived in the servants quarters. I am still in contact with the family and mailed them after my visit. I can recall the lay-out of Alston Court and wonder if it is still as it was. I would like to thank the kind lady who invited us into her residence by the church to view the `Court` from her house and to the lady in the B&B in Gravel Hill who was so helpful. Kathleen and Frank Craig.

In doing family genealogy, I had to see where my ancestors (Barker, Mawle, Walter)were from. What a wonderful place. Would love to see on-line records of your church cemetary records. Sheila Dunn, Seattle, WA USA

Frances Cuddon from United Kingdom
Thank you for your wonderful site. I am Frances, the youngest daughter of Jack (Eric) and Mary (Kathleen) of Ipswich. I knew little about my father's family but now I have a complete history. Until today I didn't even know what my grandmother was called. My father died when I was very young so I never had a change to talk about his family to him. How much time and effort it took compiling the site I wouldn'tlike to think about but I for one am really pleased you did. (BTW thank you for making me a little younger than I am!). Best wishes.
