Cox and Harris families

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

We now have two active groups with common ancestors in the area – with the names Cox (18th century) and Harris (16th century). It’s great to see everyone sharing their findings. We are still compiling our Minster Lovell family tree so if you have ancestry in our village – even only for a generation or two, then do contact us.

Moving on to the next phase – Minster Lovell research continues

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

We have now finished all the paperwork for the lottery side of the project. This week we have just received our copies of the DVDs of all the Minster Lovell photos, documents etc. which we gathered through 2010. They will be available via this website soon. Contact us if you want a copy. The team is carrying on doing research so please send anything you have on the village or its residents to us (‘contact us’ link on this website). Priorities for 2011 are:
1. A map of all the houses with names of residents from medieval to 20th century by house. Do send us any known addresses or residents you know of.
2. A war dead memorial booklet – do send any details through if you have any.

We are also continuing to research the family trees in the village, interview residents and record gravestones.
