Sutton Veny Guest Book
Huge apologies to the many people particularly from Australia who contributed to the old Guest Book. Sadly when the site was upgraded the old Guest Book could not be transferred across. If you made a post in the past, please post again.

Please see the above website for A.E.Horton His Life and Autographs. Ernie Horton was a private in the 2nd Home Counties Field Ambulance and was a nursing orderly at the prisoner of war hospital in Sutton Veny in 1916. He kept an autograph album with beautiful entries by the German prisoners of war. He originally came from Folkestone and his album was sent back to his home town by his family in Canada where he emigrated after the war. The Folkestone Local History Society has scanned the album which is an ebook on the website. Please enjoy. It will be of particular interest to any Germans researching their family history.
Excellent site thank you keep it up.
Have (group) photo if anyone knows how to attach.
J.M. Robinson was my maternal Grandfather.
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.
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 !!
