South Fambridge

By Janice Menzies on 27/09/2016 at 10:17


I wonder if you can help me, please?

I've been helping a friend research her family history, and we found that some of her ancestors came from South Fambridge.

During a recent trip to Essex, I was able to make a quick visit to the village and take some photographs of this very attractive location.

I also visited North Fambridge, and the manager of the pub there showed me a booklet on the history of that village, which I've been able to source on Amazon - however, Matti's ancestors came from South Fambridge and, with her 70th birthday coming up, I was hoping to find a similar book or booklet for there and give her both together. Are you aware of any such book, please?

Also, her great-great grandfather, William Bartam/Bartrum was brought up in the Rochford Union Workhouse, following the deaths of his mother and grandfather - are there any booklets relating to it?

I'd be very grateful for any help you can give me!

Best wishes, Janice Menzies
