Checking on the ancestors


Members of the Timewell family from London and Australia pictured in All Saints churchyard on Wednesday (Jun 5) while researching their family history.

Cousins Stephen Timewell (right), from London, and Michael Curtain (third from the right), from Melbourne, descend from the Timewells of Trendwell, Mill Lane, who emigrated to Austrralia in the 1850s.

The visitors were met by Graham Collyer, chairman of South Milton History Group, who has previously assisted Steve, a fellow journalist, in his quest to find out more about his family's roots in the village.
