I am the Grandaughter of Isaac Ling born 1838 in Blaxhall and Harriet Dennington born 1840 in Alderton. I have visited St Peter's Church in Blaxhall and the surrounding villages, such a beautiful part of the country, I was very impressed and hope to spend a few day there quite soon. Many of my family moved to London where I was born. I know that my Grandparents were buried in St Peter's Church but I cannot find any marker.
Thank you for all the good work you do.

We visited Blaxhall for the first time last week as I was interested to see where my Alfred Newson was born (1817).
I was also pleased to find that his parents, Matthew & Ann were buried in the churchyard.
On returning home I went, with interest, to your website & found a message from Nigel Ford, another Newson descendent. Perhaps we could find out if we are related?!
Blaxhall church is a lovely peaceful, welcoming place, thank-you for making it such a memorable visit.

Many thanks to all who tried to help me identify the cottage me grandmother lived in, at the GEE event. I have now found out that at the 1911 census they were living at Stone Cottage , Snape Road. I still don't know whether this is the cottage in the photo as I believe they had to move following Edward Keebles death which would have been shortly after this.
Thanks again.

I would like to use this space to extend my heartfelt thanks to everyone in the team involved in the organisation and implementation of the George Ewart Evans weekend.

The word 'special' is an understatement. I felt privileged to be there amongst you all and will remember the event and it's people for a long, long time.

Many, many thanks for all your labours.
John Savage.

Stopped off at The Ship one lunchtime last week. What a great pub. I knew of it through it's traditional music connections, but had never been there before. Pity we couldn't have stayed on to see Reg Reader on the Saturday.

My grandmother Stella Mary Keeble lived in Blaxhall as a child she was the daughter of Edward and Annie Kate Keeble and I believe lived at Stone Common. I am bringing my mother (Stella's daughter ) to Suffolk for a weeks holiday and will be at Blaxhall on 24th July.

My father Douglas Hardwicke was born in Blaxhall, as was my Grandmother, Kathleen Knights and her father John Knights. I think I am related to many of the Knights that are still living there. I believe Jimmy (James) of 'Songs from the Ship' fame was related to me. My Grandad, Eric Hardwicke who married Kathleen was a member of the Blaxhall Rovers in the 1920s and sang with George Ling and others. Check out for a great article about the singers.

If anyone knows any of my relatives please contact me. Thank you.
