Hi

This may be something & nothing but my gran came from Marlborough & I know that she would walk to Savernake with her friend & their toy prams & spend all day there.

Last night I tried to ring her, but sadly she's been taken ill & has gone to hospital. As soon as she's well I will try & find out something. Her elder sister would have known all there is to know about the area but she passed away several years ago taking so much knowledge with her.

I will try my best as soon as gran's well

Regards Suzanne

I'm so sorry to hear about your gran.  It must have been a shock for you, as you were obviously expecting her to get well.

I had to register just for this comment! I was searching online for any reference to house, for I wanted to see how it looked. You see, I went to school (some 25 years ago) with the Twisk girl who lived the house. I since moved to Canada, but continued to keep in contact with her for several years following my move. I do know, through another website, that she still lives in Marlborough, and is, I believe a painter. I can't imagine she'll be too hard to track down. Her first name is Lucy.

Hope is helps. Sad to see the house in the condition that it's in, but I hope the photographs eventually end up in the right hands.

Thanks.

Hi Canofcats

Welcome to Rootschat!  :)

The power of the internet never ceases to amaze me - and quite a coincidence that you were looking at the same time as Kojak decided to post this topic!

I hope we can convert you and you will visit us again.

Kind regards, Arranroots  ;)

Amazing !!

Many many thanks for the tip.  We shall try and repatriate the photos and the info to the rightful family now.

Like Arranroots says, welcome to this family history site.

Thanks for your great help.
