I am doing some research on a Canadian artist, Emily Carr , who stayed at the Jane Walker Hospital in the early 1900's
It would be particularly interesting if any family of Jane Walker or people who worked at the hospital ever received artwork or letters from her. All information will be passed to
the Royal British Columbia Museum. I live in Suffolk , so plan to come and visit the area in 2014.

Could any of your residents help me with a little historical research, please? I am the owner of a 1938 Alvis car, bought new by Violet Walsh, Bear House, Bear Street, Nayland. I am in touch with Mrs Walsh's descendents. In 1950 she sold the car to Mr W Matthews, Cedar Cottage, Nayland. Thereafter the trail goes cold. Does the Matthews family still live in Nayland? They may know who the car was then sold to. Any information would be most gratefully received.

Thank you so much for the wonderful article, which you have kept alive & updated all these years. Charles F. Gumm was my Great Uncle (by Grandma being Lucille). I wanted to note/add that Uncle Chuck had two other siblings that he left behind; Ross & Velda. Uncle Chuck was the baby of the family, & Ross was his older brother along with both sisters (Velda & Lucille). They've all since passed away; the older siblings prior to Lucille. Really enjoyed reading all of this compilation, and the photos are so wonderful! Thank you again.

After many years of researching my family tree, I was so pleased to find this website. I am searching for any information about my Great Uncle and his family. He was Frank Johnson who owned The Stores in Mill Street, Nayland. I know he had a son Dennis who lived at St Ives Farm, Boxted. I believe his daughter Minette Hosker lived at 3 Crossfields, Stoke by Nayland and have written to her at that address but have had no reply. Anyone with any information should contact me at my email address please. I would be so grateful for any snippet you may have. Thanks.

My descendant John Ffirman was born here. 1465-1520 hes my 10th great grandfather. Spelling on Furman name has many different spellings. This is where I hit a roadblock if you have any information records so I can keep going on my family tree i would truly appreciate it.

Love this site! I decided to look up Charles Gumm after my wife informed me that the wood swing we have on our front porch was made by Charles as a high school project and carried bundled on his back to shop class.. Charles was my mother in-laws uncle. I had no idea he was such a great man.. It truly was the greatest generation. I've always had a fascination for WWII aircraft and I'm currently building a scale WWII Seafury RC plane. Our porch swing will always be special area of our home now that I have this wonderful story to share!

I am looking for my ancestor, Shubael Stearns who left Nayland to the colonies in 1630. He had a wife Mary and 2 sons, Charles age 10 and Nathaniel, age 8.

Shubael and his family travelled with Charles and his family and Daniel Stearns who was single. They left from Yarbrough.

If anyone has ideas for local records of that time for the Nayland area, I would appreciate it.

Thanks. Ruth Stearns Patterson

I am planning to visit Nayland in the summer holidays to try and piece together my family history. My Great great grandfather was Henry Augustus Johnson who was a farmer in Nayland, he had a daughter Mabel, born 1873-75. But apart from this info I can find nothing about the Johnsons on any ancestry website until Mabel married my great grandfather in London in 1889, any help would be most appreciated.

Hi Claire Cowley. I remember Mr. Oliver and Mrs. Oliver in the Primary school. I also remember you, but you were younger than me. Your dad used to frighten the hell out of us doing our math timetable every morning...

Thank you for this wonderful site! I am hoping to come to Nayland to search for my Holton (Houghton,Hulton) ancestors. I know William, son of Edward was bapt. 20 Oct 1610 at St. Mary's (born at Wiston Manor not Hall). Would anyone have an idea where to go for further family history? :)
