Hello, I’ve recently come across your site as I am researching my family from Lodsworth. My 3rd great grandparents were James Stevens (1833-1914) and Mary Ann Boxall (1832 – 84). I noticed on your ‘Posts’ page that a couple of members had posted about this family and they had photos of James and his father George. My 2nd great grandfather moved out of Lodsworth and into Godstone and most of the current family is still in that area. We don’t have any information on James or George at all so I was wondering whether these members had submitted their photos to you or whether you might know a way to put us all in contact as it’s been a long time since they both posted.
Also, I know Mary Ann Boxall and James are both in the chuchyard there and we have a photo of Mary Ann’s headstone but I was wondering whether you had any idea on which plot she is in? I have looked at your work for burials post 1900 and James is listed without a plot. Would this be because he has no headstone and/or because there are no parish records about his burial itself?
I was so happy to find your site and spent quite some time looking through everything. I will certainly be a regular reader now since at least 2 generations of my own family lived there throughout their lives. I’m planning on visiting soon so I’m looking forward to seeing the village.
