Old photographs

No local has supplied any old local photos for the site as yet - someone must be sitting on some interesting records of times gone by in Great Wishford- please step forward!!

Jan 2010 - just been supplied a photo from 1904 from Amanda Chambers in America with this info:

Her Father's family, the West's, Canning's and Simper's came from Great Wishford.

An australian chap (Warrwick Hoad) has sent in a couple of photos with requests for further info. Can anyone help him?!

His email:

I have recently found your webpages.  My ancestors are the Henstridges & Newtons from around the Great Wishford/South Newton/Wilton area.
Two photos:
1.  CobbMill (?) about 1960.  Grandmothers home (Olga Louise Henstridge) before migrating to Australia in about 1920.

2.  Newton family photo - Newtons around 1905.
