My familly (Brown) used to live at 83 Bohemia Chase

originally bought by James Brown and wife Eliza nee Gasken at one point Chillingstone and apparently a Lamb.

If anybody has time and inclination I would love pics of St. Lawrence and All
Saints Churchyard graves. I live in Asia and find the distance hard to cover nowadays.

Some graves were lost when a carpark was put in many years ago. Among those lost were childrens graves Brown, Lamb and Bibby.

hello again,
sorry for delay i had a problem with my pc last night but seems ok today.

i am very interested in the quote (Some graves were lost when a carpark was put in many years ago. Among those lost were childrens graves Brown, Lamb and Bibby) as have been told that there were some bibby graves of children but have been unable to find them.

i will come back on after work today and send you some photos of the church.
i have quite a few lists of surnames for that church. they are on another thread (eastwood church, eastwood essex) but for some reason it is locked which i think means you cannot message on it but you can look at it. it may be of interest to you. :)

I have not lived in the area for over 30 years but as a cjild i had to go every Saturday to the cementary to tend the graves.
The last time I was there about 20 years ago a carpark had been built over the area that contained in my memory almost exclusivly childrens graves, all marked.
Among them Brown, Lamb and Bibby. Along what was then the wall of the cementary in the same area where shrubs and things grew there was a particularly big tree, in that area there were more graves, babes and toddlers,
all unmarked.
I was told that we were related to the Bibby's.
Sorry my drawing iis so aweful but hope it helps

Hi, I'm new. I've become interested in the gypsy/traveller presence in Eastwood through trying to separate the myth from fact in the stories about George Pickingill and "Silly Bill" Spearman and other alleged wizards/witches. Fanny Bird, Nelly Button. Whether or not George Pickingill was of gypsy kin is a relevant question for those of us interested in this area....

According to folklorist Eric Maple the gypsy presence in Eastwood dates from the 1870s after evictions from Epping Forest. I'm guessing that it is in fact much earlier (and some posts I've seen on this site tend to confirm that without putting it beyond doubt).

Excuse me if this is a silly question btw, I live in Australia!
