You may know that Edith Freeman has already produced various local history
books. Her last publication was the 'Little Book of Ballingdon', a
collaboration with her neighbours John and Jill Taylor.
Again they have helped - he is a retired science teacher and worked as the
research assistant, while Jill who teaches Art provides the illustrations.
The new book 'The Heart of Sudbury' was launched in the town last night is
now on sale.
There are two small family run bookshops in Sudbury, but unfortunately only
one is on-line and can take orders to deliver anywhere in the world,

Can any kind person help me on this one? I've been STUCK for quite a while. . .
Looking for MARTIN family:
William MARTIN = Louisa [nee REED/READ] They married in Polstead in 1833.
Daughter Emma MARTIN [baptised Polstead 1836]
Son John MARTIN [baptised Polstead 1846]
1. Can anyone with POLSTEAD Parish Marriage Reg access inform me of William MARTIN's and Louisa REED/READ's fathers, occupations [and witnesses]?
2. Can anyone with 1841 census access - look up this family in Polstead?
3. Can anyone with 1851 census access - check to see if the family are still in the area?
Emma MARTIN moved to Lee, Kent some time in the 1850's and then on to Lamberhurst/Wadhurst area during the 1870's.
Emma married JOB KENNAIRD and I can't find their marriage ANYWHERE! - but that is another story. . .
I do hope I'm not asking too many questions.
Many thanks for reading this email.
