I am visiting horbling with my mother and auntie on the 12 february as they were evacuated here during the war. I was wandering if you may have any information on a Mr and Mrs Harris that had a large country manor in horbling who took in my mother and twin sister. Also she remembers a young boy she went to school with by the name of Ross Dauney and a phyllis Tasker both of them residents of Horbling. I would be eternally grateful if you could help me contact any of these people or their relatives. Please contact me on the above email address. Thank You. Andrea Lee

Good morning
My family and I will be visiting Horbling over the New Year 2014. My grandfather Arthur William Archer born 1903 was a choir boy and bell ringer in this church. Grandad made four weather vanes for the top of the church when he was a young blacksmith and then paid for their replacement in 1948. I'm not sure if these are still in existence. His mother Ellen Elizabeth Archer and grandmother Harriet France Archer are buried in the cemetery. If anyone knew grandad or his family could they please contact me. Thank you.

I am researching my paternal ancestry which includes the WASS family of Horbling.
My Gt. Gt. Grandmother was AMY WASS whose father was John Wass b. 1791 in Selston Notts and died in Kinderhook America.
The WASS family married into Sutton of Horbling Goodliffe Akister Eades of Baslow Derbyshire among others.
I would be very pleased to correspond with descendants of any of these connections.

I have done some research on the family and would be happy to pool resources. Do you have any idea why John Goodliff went to the states?

I am doing genealogical research and want to sort out the lineage of Simon Bradstreet who was I'm told Vicar of Horbling from 1596 to 1621. I'm also told that he was born in 1580 which would seem inconsistent with a 1596 vicarship. Can you conveniently confirm the 1596 date? Do you have any other information on Rev. Bradstreet?
