Lopen info please
« on: Sunday 17 July 11 13:58 BST (UK) »
I am looking for information on families in Lopen, Somerset.

Gillard
Long
England
Druce
Davey
Laty
Brown
Masters

They all seem to be inter-related and I am trying to build up an overall view of all the families in the village from 1700-1900, so if anyone has any information on the families, or people connected to these, I would be most grateful for any  information also for any info relating to Lopen at all.

Many thanks ;D

Hi there

Have you come across the web site for Lopen History Group at

http://mhc.freehostia.com/LopenVillage/history_group.htm

Not any connection to your families, but my Grandfather's sister and her husband were teachers at Lopen at the time of the 1901 census.

Living at School House Lopen Board School. George Rutt aged 51, his second wife Winifred (nee Henly) Rutt aged 29, four of George's children and their son Cyril Rutt aged 1 who was born at Lopen. They had another son Leonard before George died in 1904. Winifred then went to be Headmistress at Elworthy School between 10904 and 1911.

I will be making a visit to the Somerset Records Office sometime. Is there any specific info you need on your families?

Hi Jon

Sent some information to your message box

I'm one of the England's that still lives in the area, well about 20 miles the way the crow flies from Lopen.  Mind you Granddad was born in Australia, but gt granddad brought part of the family back to England, first to south petherton, then settling in Bridgwater.

Hi Jo and Jon,

I am researching my brother-in-law's family history at the moment (in readiness for a DNA test that is in process)... and I have found that he isa direct descendant of the England's from Lopen.
Perhaps he's related to the members of your family who stayed in Australia, as that's where we are.
Are you familiar with the family that switched back and forth between the surnames England and Cable (also Cabble)? I'm a little confused, as I don't know which one is their real surname and which is the alias... both a genuine surnames from that area.

I'd love to hear from anyone who is working on this as well.

Karen
