Found this website, think it's fantastic. We returned from Australia after many years and were thinking of visiting Blaxall for a day out in the summer. A few years ago my Mother traced our family tree right back to 1600's. My Great Grandfather was Eliza Ling (brother of Esau Ling) and I actually have his memorial card (buried in Wandsworth) as well as some old photos. I looked at your gallery and certain that I am related to the David Ling pictured. My Mum created a huge family tree diagram, but it takes on another dimension to be able look at faces and places - fantastic! I will definately visit Blaxall this summer with the wife and kids (all Lings of course!) and am about to ring my parents who now live in Suffolk (previously Essex) and let them know about this site. I would love to hear from any distant relatives... stories..etc. Isn't it amazing how the Lings have spread all over the globe? Interestingly when we lived in Adelaide our GP's were a family of Hill-Lings. (Ling came from Suffolk and married the daughter of Hill family who invented the Hills Hoist - Aussie version of the whirly washing line). We also came across another Ling when we lived in Far North Queensland, Peter Ling and it turned out he only lived around the corner so I popped in to speak to him - his father had orginated in Suffolk. GREAT SITE! Regards John Ling

Congratulations on the beautifully presented site.

My G-G-Grandfather, a farm labourer named Charles Randall came from Blaxhall to Australia in 1849 as an assisted immigrant. After many years working as a carrier working a bullock team and then a farm labourer, he managed to select land near Birchip in Victoria and own his own farm. He and his wife Peggy left 11 offspring, including Kate, my Great-Grandmother.

I would be grateful if someone could check the Parish Register to see if Charles's christening (somewhere around 1820) is recorded there. Sadly there is a lack of documentation regarding his life in Suffolk. I do hope that someone can help.

Best wishes,

Note for Anitra - No idea why i looked up the name Blaxhall tonight (must have been a sub-conscious thought), but couldnt believe my eyes when i discovered a long lost friend - remember Killeen Street? Hope all in the family are well.

The website is excellent and one of the best Ive seen -even better to see some 'old' relatives pictures!
I've recently visited the village whilst researching my family tree and met B.A.G. and some cousins I never knew I had- everyone was wonderful. Thank you.

Great Web site. I always look forward to reading news from the village, particularly since my stay at the Ship in 2001. I'd love to see more contributions from other Blaxhalls.
My eldest daughter Anitra Blaxhall has been with the Welsh National Opera in Cardiff now for five years. Maybe I'll get to Blaxhall when I visit her again, perhaps this year.
Keep up the good work.
