You live in a beautiful part of England. Over 165 years ago some of my relatives lived there too.

On Sunday, 30th March 1851, at the time of the 1851 census, relatives on my mother’s side were living in Sutton Veny. No other address is given. The head of the family was Thomas Rowe, aged 44, who was a coachman and had been born in Rainham, Essex. His wife aged 50 was Mary Rowe, who worked as a laundress. She was originally from Warminster. At that time the family had 4 children: Sophia (12), Mary Ann (11), Louise (8) and John (5), all of whom were attending school. By the time of the 1861 census the family had moved to Long Street in Devizes.

I would be most grateful if anyone was able to let me know where they had lived in your village and where the school was that the children might have attended.

Congratulations on your website.

My grandfather convalesced in this lovely place after being wounded in WWI. He was there in August 1918. He was quite a character I understand and during this time he was AWOL when he discovered the pub! Such an Aussie. I hope to visit Sutton Veny this year. Thank you for this great page.

I came across the cemetery by accident. A number of my family were in France and Palestine during the Great War. Grandfather, Great Uncles and cousins.
We Will Remember Them.
My thanks and wishes go to the people of Sutton Veny. A beautiful, well kept cemetery and lovely church.
Thank You !!

We were in your lovely village in July of last year and were very moved by the Commonwealth War Cemetery - the peace and beautiful way it has been looked after. We are ex-pats living in Melbourne, Australia and wanted to wish you well on Anzac Day. And thank you for looking after the diggers who died so far from home..
