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.

Wht a great site mmy ancestors the Cleghorn and Hearn familys were living in Nayland in the 1700s and 1800s. It would be great to find any distance relatives still living in the area

I have just discovered your wonderful website. Some years ago my father traced our ancestors back 500 years; they were all farmers from in and around Wiston.It was lovely to find several of my ancestors buried in a long line in the church yard of St. Mary's. The connection was lost for me however when my great grandfather married the milk maid and was subsequently disinherited. It would be lovely to find that i still have distance relatives living in the area!!

(Mrs) Robin Cook from Australia
Thank you for the wonderful site. My ancestors the Carringtons were sawyers and carpenters in Fen Street, Nayland, in the 1840s and earlier. We have managed to research the family a little from censuses, parish records, and tithe maps and associated lists. I have also visited the village and it is beautiful, as is the district. Unfortunately, we visited before we found out where the Carringtons lived - in Fen Street, and Samuel owned a house opposite the Independent Church - so we did not photograph their particular houses.

Edward L Fenn from New Zealand
Congratulations Nayland & Wiston on your informative website. I have a strong historic connection with Nayland in that my Gt. grandfather Thomas Fenn and grandfather Edward were residents. Edward inherited Alston Court from his mothers family (Alston) early last century, renovated it extensively and renamed it Alston Court. Should anyone be interested I have collated over the years an extensive family history of these families and Alston Court, also the Liveing, Vanderzee, Julius, Hand and Giles families. May the Nayland & Wiston community continue to go from strength to strength serving its residents well, as in the past.

Antique shop was closed but church across the road was open. Saw good to very good religious painting. Church Guide said it was a Constable. We said "must be crazy mate to leave a Constable in unlocked church. Pull the other leg." Took photos etc. Came home to Ozzie land and told friends etc. later read painting was nicked. Friends in UK at the time living in our holiday house near Long Melford. Rang them for fun and police answer Phone. Long story but still remember etc Nayland when we meet up with our old friends. Is some one looking after the poor thing now or is it still free to a good home? Regards Helen and Ivan Phillips. Canberra Australia.

My family immigrated from Nayland to the US in 1630. I have visited your beautiful village on several occasions and contributed the carpet to St. James Church some years ago. There are no warmer or friendler people anywhere in the world than you will find in Nayland, Enbland. Darryl F. Starnes Mechanicsville, Virginia USA
