Bressingham And Smith Family

A Memory of Bressingham

My great grandfather was born at Bressingham, a Thomas Smith, he had his own farm on Bressingham Common Road. He used to look after the workhouse land and owned land in Bressingham. I have visited Bressingham several times, it is a most charming village.,My grand father (4th removed) was a son of Thomas, he married Sarah Dixon from Winfarthing and their daughter Mary Ann was born at Bressingham. My 4th removed grandfather was Walter Smith, he moved to the coal mines near Durham and worked there the rest of his life. Bressingham is a lovely country place and I would have loved to live there and work on a farm. We also had a farm when I was a boy but my family were mostly in mining and I was a mining mechanical engineer.
