Hi everyone, does anyone know if there are any early graves in Buntisham? I am talking of 1600 -1700 up till 1800, the name Lack. I know of quite a few in Willingham church, but also have details of births and deaths in Bluntisham and Longstanton. I am a desendent of the Lacks, most of them were carpenters, as was my great grandfather, Benjamin Lack, born 1833 Willingham, father Joseph, mother Mary Crisp. They go back to early 1600. Best wishes to all, Pat Mason.

My nan was born a Hayden in London, her father Levi and his ancestors go back in the village to the 1500s. Nan and grandad - Emma and Henry (Harry) Welsh - lived at Ivy Cottage, 30 Church Street in their twilight years and are buried in the churchyard. Nan once said she was related to the whole village. I am researching the family tree, and I must admit that many family lines do entwine!
