Visited Blaxhall today and saw the wonderful church - so beautiful and so welcoming. We were looking for family of my wife's gt grandmother Ellen Smith Dale who was born there in 1862.|
Your site does good justice to a beautiful village - well done

I wish all villages were as well researched and documented. Your book is a credit to all involved in it's production as is the DVD.|
My Ancestors the Newsons(on my Grand Mother's side)came from Blaxhall, Sadly I knew nothing of them but thanks to your site and your book I now have an insight into my roots.

As a child I lived in Blaxhall, in a big rented house (hall) with a park and shellhouse. My stepfarther was the painter Hugh Brandon-Cox and my mother ZsaZsa Brandon-Cox from Sweden. They got two children together; a boy and a girl. Our nearest neighbour was a farmer, Mr Poacher with wife. I would so much like to know the name of the house, not far from the village school (today youth hostel) and any thing you could tell me.|
Margaret, today 61 years of age. I hade my 8th birthday in Blaxhall.

I visited Blaxhall Common/Village on Sunday, very pleasant except for the very windy conditions.|
I am wondering why the rock has been placed in the village sign between 4 prongs, prank or deliberate. I have a picture of it on my Blaxhall page on the site below
Nice site you have

Some very interesting reading in the Guest Book.|
Well I was able to visit Blaxhall again, this time with my daughter Anitra who is resident in Cardiff and we spent a few nights at The Ship during July 2008. What a wonderful village and area, I was sorry to leave. The menu and preparation of the food at The Ship was top class. I was disappointed though to find that the Ship guest book of previous years had disappeared.
As a point of interest, my mother was born in Bury St.Edmunds and my father at Manningtree, although he spent a number of years in Aylsham.
Congratulations to the Landlords at The Ship Inn and all concerned with this Web site.

I havent been on your site for a little while and it seems to have grown, which is lovely. I'm still looking for information on my great grandfather Ellis Keeble, great grandfather Benjamin Keeble, and his wives Sophia Ellis and Mary Ann Thurston. Be so happy to hear from anyone that has info.|
