I found your site while doing research about my ancestors who are listed in several British census as living at Burntwood. My great grandfather was James Bott, and my great great grandfather was William Bott and my great, great, great grandfather was James Bott. I'm very new to this but it's so interesting.

Congratulations on an incredibly detailed website. This resource is of great use in educating students of today about the realities of war.I am pleased that one of the photographs in the album I was involved with in the 1990s has been of use.

Hi, While looking through your old postcard pictures, I came across the one with the thatched cottages, Old Road Armitage. My Dads family lived in one of them. The Cyples family. It was nice to see the cottages again, they should never have knocked them down. Thank You, for sharing this.

Came across this great site whilst carrying out research into my Arnott family history. John Arnott, mentioned on the Farewell page, is the son of William Arnott who is my 4th Great Grandfather. I was born in Norton Canes and so was delighted to find a photo of Norton Square. The bus stop on the photo is right in front of the house (not shown) where I spent the first 21 years of my life. I really enjoyed browsing your site - keep up the good work!

My father, John Walters, was Vicar of Burntwood and chaplain at St Matthews from about 1956 until he moved over to Harlaston. I particularly remember the installation of the WW2 window, and the removal of the pews, and the Italians who put down the terrazo floor. We lived in the old Vicarage, which was demolished after I had moved on, and a new one built. I saw the start of the huge buildling programme in the area, although I attended the Friary school in Lichfield, so my focus was very much in that direction. I must come back and see what I recognise!

Great to see the chruch that ties in so many of my recently unknown family. My Grandmother's sister?? Gertrude was married in this church in 1908 she being a Glover (Yarnall) he being George Golder. Before finding this record we always though my grandmother belonged to a different side of the Glover family. It seems many of the decendents of the Yarnall family are around Chasetown still? if anyone can tie in Yarnall - Glover and Rudd please contact me by email. Many thanks

I have just found this site as I am researching a branch of the family (HAWKINS) that came to Hednesford in the 1880's from Old Park, Telford, Shropshire. There names were Jonas/h and Rosanna Lucy. They had about 11 children and looking at records stayed in the local area.

I look forward to hearing from anybody who knew the descendants of Jonas and Lucy.

The House with Twelve and a Half Chimneys. At last I have read an account of Treneere Manor and its last inhabitants by someone who knew it and had visited. My GGGrandmother was Eliza Jane Polglase ( Joseph's sister). We had always wondered how Joseph had got the money for Treneere! I have been unable to find any records of him going to California and now I know. Did he go with his brother John? Joseph has been described as a seafarer, but again I can find no evidence for this. Do you have any ideas.Presumably all the information you have is from Reginald Symons. Did he keep a market garden? Do you know of the existence of any photographs of the inside of the house or indeed any of the Polglase family? I know the contents when sold went for hundreds of thousands of pounds. Anything else you can tell me would be most interesting as that Polglase line is now extinct -apart from me-and very few people are around who would have remembered the house and those who lived in it. I can't find any resting place for Joseph or his wife, Sarah Carne - They're not in the family graves in Lelant. I have an uncle who remembers visiting the house as a small boy but he's now 92 and really can't remember anything. Thank you once again for solving my mystery and hopefully you or somebody out there can answer my other questions.

Great Website- Revisited again, Family from Rugeley to N.Z. in 1874. Family history done 60 yrs ago, by Aunt. writing to Rev. H.A. Ainsworth, Vicar of the old parish church in Rugeley, who passed it on to Mr. Walter N. Landor, who had collected all the parish records and old civil records, who voluntarily copied out every entry in the Parish Register.My family name is Smytheman, of which there is mention of them in this website. The family at one stage, in 1745 became the landlord of the "Sign of the Star" Inn Rugeley. Also several years later, in 1774 a son, also became landlord,until 1778. The name of this Inn, was changed, some time later on and became known, just as the "Star Inn".
