Great Ellingham – a One-Place Study
I guess that you’ve come across my website as either you have an interest in the village of Great Ellingham, or your ancestors came from the village in days gone by.
My aim is to research some of the families living in Great Ellingham (primarily in the 18th and 19th centuries), and to find out how the events of the times affected the village and/or the inhabitants.
I can easily get side tracked when researching, and you may find a blog about something else – although it would generally have a connection to the village.
Since the launch in July 2019, the website has grown from a few blogs and images to over 300 stories with more being added every month (time and material permitting!). Not only focused on Great Ellingham, the Gallery now includes images relating to some of the surrounding villages and towns, as well as photographs of some of the amazing archaeological finds in Great Ellingham.
I am delighted that Christine Fuller, a local artist, has provided wonderful illustrations for some of the stories. These illustrations certainly bring some of the village characters to life!
I hope you will find my One-Place Study website interesting. This is very much work in progress. With new blogs being frequently added, do check back now and again to see what’s new.
If you have any interesting stories, memories, photographs or postcards which you are willing to share, please do get in touch with me via the Contact Page.
