I am based in Essex. One branch of my
family comes from Hundon - the Pawsey Family. My
great-grandparents Alfred and Martha Pawsey (nee Traylor -tbc)
were born in Hundon and met at the village school, moving to
London in the 1890s, where they married.
We are keen to know more about what life in Hundon would have
been like during the time they lived there - and also know more
about the village school.
1st picture - we are very keen
to have any information on who the couple are outside this
cottage, and if possible where the photo was taken. We believe
they may be Joseph and Miriam Pawsey (nee Ling) -
married in Hundon on 24th May 1873. They are my great-great
grandparents. However this is very much supposition and we
would appreciate some definite information.
2nd Picture - again we are very
interested to have confirmation of the identity of the figure
seated in the horse and trap. the seated figure does resemble
other photographs of Alfred Pawsey - but as he would have left
Hundon lon before this would have been taken - we are unsure of
the identity and would like to know more about the circumstances
of the photo. We would also be interested to know more about
the other individuals in the photograph.
Hundon is a very attractive village in the
West Suffolk countryside with a population of 2098 (at the 2001 census)
and has many amenities including the village shop, two public houses,
(the Rose & Crown) in the heart of the village and The Plough at Brockley Green. Large playing fields cater for football, cricket and
many other sporting Diamond Jubilee. The village hall holds regular events
which attracts many visitors from outside the area.
