There is a Marriage in 1902 at Marlborough Wiltshire of a Charles Peck and a Rose Ferris.

Thanks, William.

We really, really need to find out roughly where Emil was held in England.

I have sent out lots of messages today: Red Cross, Farmers' Union and a whole lot more.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that something might turn up...

Thanks again,
Karen

Probably just a coincidence,but as well as the person Garstonite identified,there is a Rose Peck at Folly Farm,Chiseldon,Swindon to WW1.There was an army camp at Chiseldon that had German and Italian POWs at the end of WW2.

I don't know if it is any help, but I can definitely confirm there were pow's working on farms in Wiltshire. I remember my Mum and aunts talking about them going past where they lived. The family home was about 10-15 miles from the area suggested in the previous replies.

Thanks for that. I'll see what I can find on Folly Farm.

I have just spoken to the man who now owns Folly Farm. He only bought it a few years back, from a family named Whatley. There was no house to speak of - everything had fallen into disrepair. Sounds as though the current owners have put a lot of work into it, as it is now a working farm again.
The man knows absolutely nothing about the history of the farm around WWII, unfortunately.

I'll see if I can track down the Whatleys.

The search continues...

Karen

UPDATE: The Mr Whatley I have just spoken to said that his brother knows a lot more about the history of the farm. He is on holiday, but will be back soon. I can call him at the beginning of next week.

on a farm in Preshute Without ,Wiltshire there is a lady named Rose Peck with her husband Charles  just before WW1 - Charles is 46 and Rose is 29 - so in 1942 ish she would be around 60 - has Birgit any idea how old Rose was when her dad was there - this is just an example of a possibility - that particular Rose died in 1948 aged 66.......is this the type of road we are looking to go down ??

Hi garstonite,

Do you by any chance have a name for the farm?

Thanks,
Karen
