I am looking for information on my great grandmother Sarah Ann Carpenter. Born in 1865 to parents Emmanuel Carpenter and Elizabeth Ann Ford, she married George Carpenter about 1890. They lived at 27 Newbury Lane, Horningsham and had several children (Tom, Amy, Daisy, Georgina, Alfred (my Grandfather),Alice M. and Primrose). George Davis (1876-1939)later married Alice Loiusa Fielding (First married to Eli Croft), also of Horningsham, which leads me to believe my GGrandmother Sarah Ann Carpenter likely died about 1904. I can find no record of her death however. My GGrandfather George Davis was a Forester at Longleat Estate.He emigrated to Canada where he lived in Peterborough, Ontario. He is buried there in Little Lake Cemetary. I would appreciate any family information.

Does anyone have any information about the antecedence of my forbear Joseph Trollop/Trollip who emigrated to South Africa with his wife Susanna Crouch in 1820? I am particularly interested in linking him either with Standerwick Court (after which he named his farm in S Africa) and/or a stonemason called Trollope who was brought down from Scotland in the 1500s by Sir John Thynn to build Longleat and who probably worshipped at the Dissenting Chapel in Horningsham, where many Trollops still live - my ancestor was an active Wesleyan. Thanks!

red mail Thomas Newbury,
Thomas Newbury was steward to Sir John Thynne at Longleat House from at least 1601 onwards and after Sir John's Death (1604) served his widow Joan,until she died in 1612. He was still serving the family until at least 1614.(See Two Elizabethan Women,Alison D.Wall,Devizes,(1983)As a reward for his services he received a farmhouse and land near Horningsham and this holding may have been given the name Newbury through him.My known ancestors owned a cottage in Great Cheverell at this time and it is possible that they were relatives to the Newburys in Newbury, Horningsham. Is anyone able to tell me about Newbury hamlet as it is today, and any of its known or published history.Where would it be possible to find out about Thomas Newbury's family in Newbury,Horningsham? Would it be worthwhile to consult the archives of the Longleat House Estates? I need help and guidance urgently.

Interested in the CARPENTER family of Horningsham (including such ancestors as Worthy and Major Carpenter).
