What is this page about....
Every now and again the webmaster (that's Christian) gets an E mail asking
for information about someone's family history
or similar enquiries. We encourage these
types of E mails as we usually finish up
learning a bit more about our village.
Copied below are queries that have been received. If you can provide

From Hugh Homan:
Dear people of Berwick St James!
What a fantastic website!
Briefly (your time is precious), I'm a foreigner - I
live in Suffolk!
But in the 1920s my grandmother's half-sister came to
live in Berwick St James with her husband and two daughters. A son was born
later. They lived in 'Westfields'. I have a photo of it - an old, thatched,
detached cottage. Does it still exist, I wonder?
My wife and I are
coming down to visit a friend who lives in Lydford-on-Fosse next month and I'd
very much like to call by and take some photos of your area as I'm beginning to
follow up some family history.
If I may ask you for a brief response
to this e-mail (anybody know of said property?) I would appreciate it very
Since receiving the above E mail High
has sent another E mail stating that he
suspects that the Westfield house may infact
be in Lake.
