My hope is that this site will help people understand the origins of the local area and appreciate the effort that our ancestors have put into making this village what it is today. The information on this site is based on a study of numerous sources including local history publications, legal deeds and letters, National Archives, old books and pictures, Ancestry websites, and also the contribution of local residents.
I will record the source of each article's information at the bottom of each webpage. If there is anything you would like to see on this site or maybe something you would like to contribute, please contact me on.
