A friend of mine told me he saw some testimonies of a spell caster called DR Owo that he is 100% capable to bring ex back lover within some few days, i laugh it out and said i am not interested but because of the love my friend had for me, she consulted the great spell caster on my behalf and to my greatest surprise after 2 days my husband called me for the very first time after 12 months he left me and the kids that he is missing me and that he is so sorry for every thing he made me went through. He came back to me and now we are happy together. I still cant believe it, because it is highly unbelievable. Thank you DR Owo for bringing back my lover and also to my lovely friend who interceded on my behalf, for any one who might need the help of this great spell caster here is his via:

SUDBURY, United KingdomPosted by ColinWright at 1:12PM on 3rd April, 2020. (

I am researching Wright family. My father, Gerald Clare Wright was born at Bell Villa in Feb 1917. His mother Grace (nee Goodchild) lived near Ongar in Essex but went to Clare to be near her sister-in-law Florence May Wright (I only believe this to be the reason).Florence was married(?) to Willie Bareham (was really called Gerald) whose father kept the Bell at that time. In 1911 census Florence was not living at the Bell with Willie but there is an earlier record of them being married. I am trying to establish if Florence's father Isaac and mother Anna Marie (my Great Grandparents) came to live at Clare abt 1930 - I have little detail about this period of their lives. Florence was a "Photographer's Assistant" in 1911

There were a load of messages here I wanted to reply to but they now seem to be gone: The replies were:

I'm wanting to reply to Terry Bareham. My ancestors are also the Clare Jarvis family with mentions of Ashen, Essex too. I'm in the process of doing their family tree, with the help of Graham from Honey Hill Cafe and Peggy Smith from the Clare Museum among others. Happy to compare notes and share info! Please feel free to give my email address to Terry Bareham. (My late Grandma was Sallie Jarvis, her Granddad was Edmund John Jarvis of Clare, his Dad was Samuel Jarvis of Clare, his Dad was John Jarvis of Clare - I've got quite a bit of info on all of these, and plenty of others in the family). Eliza and Jeffries are relevant to my family tree too (the Clare Jarvis clan). Want to compare notes?

I'd like to reply to Bill Howson, regarding Honey Hall, which I believe was Honey Hill. (Many things were mis-written/misread/mistyped from when our ancestors said them to the census men, to when we read them typed up online today). I have quite a bit of info on Honey Hill and would be glad to compare family tree notes as my family were the Clare Jarvis clan.

Reply to COUTTS: I'm interested in comparing notes on the Dare family in Clare. I believe my great great great great grandma Martha Jarvis was born Martha Dare but I can't find records on her. Hoping we might be able to help each other. Also, I should be visiting Clare in the future and intend to check out the grave yards as John Jarvis (Martha's hubby) is buried there, so perhaps could look for you too!
Anya : )

General call-out: My ancestors were the Jarvis family of Clare:
Edmund John Jarvis born 1865, Clare, & his siblings Samuel, Octavius Alexander, & William George Jarvis. Edmund married Eliza Bridgman I believe. Although maybe a she was a Bruty.
Edmund's father Samuel Jarvis born 1823 in Clare (siblings Elizabeth, George, Sarah) & mother Catherine Ann Jarvis born 1823-5 Clare (I think maiden name Read/Reed).
Samuel's father John Jarvis born 1782-6, a Carrier, 19-20 Church Street (then 'Honey Hill') among various other properties and involved in brickmaking too. And mother Martha I believe birth surname Dare.
I'm interested in ANY records/info/family trees people want to share relevant to the above, and to who they married (which I believe includes families Dare, Bruty, Yeldham, Male, Ambrose, Perry, Cluff & Price). Will gladly share what I have in return : )

I came across this message from a Rosie in 2012:

'Hello, Just stumbled on this noticeboard whilst researching Clare & wondered if anyone would recognise the surname PETTIT or know anything about the history of CABINET MAKERS in the area. I have been researching my family history & (with the help of the Bury Records Office) have got back to my grt.grt.grt.grandfather Walter who was baptised in Clare with his brother Richard in the early 1800s; their father, Nathaniel, married to Mary (poss Bowley) was a cabinet maker.
Any comments much appreciated. Rosie'

My 5 x great grandfather was Nathanial Pettit who married a Mary Borley (possibly) on 26.
05.1794 his parish was Clare Suffolk. They married in Long Melford.
I would love to hear from anyone and especially Rosie who may have the Pettits in their tree. They had a son Thomas Nathaniel Pettit who moved to London and was also a cabinet maker.

Looking for information about Ellen Howard Turner. She was born in May 1906 at Trundles Farm, Clare to Louisa Howard, nee Gotobed, originally from Landbeach, Cambridgeshire. Sadly Louisa (age 31) died in childbirth and Ellen was brought up by the Turner family. George Turner is believed to be the father. She attended school in Stoke by Clare and then Ashen but I don't know what happened to her after that.

Thank you for any help you can give me.

GOWERS/WALLIKER family. Can anyone help me find information regarding James Gowers, builder, of Stoke by Clare who died 1840 and his family, descendants? He was known by Gowers but also Walliker. He had a few wives, one being Hannah Matilda Gowers (nee Locke) who died 1825 after their son James was born. James Senior had relationships and then remarried. He died 1840. He was survived by his widow Mary Gowers otherwise Walliker (nee Clarke) who died 1877 at Stoke next Clare. Upon James's death she continued to run the building business on the Green, advertised in the directory as Mary Gowers, bricklayer in 1844 and was known as a respectable lady. She employed their two sons who were bricklayers. I believe one of her sons carried on the bricklaying business as James Gowers, Bricklayer appears in the 1896 Post Office Directory for Stoke by Clare. Does anything survive regarding their business or information about the family? Thanking you kindly.

Am researching my family tree. My Grandfather William James Peacock was killed in WW1 before my Mother was born in 1918. I have traced his Father William and Mother Mary Ann Hills from Ashen and trying to go back further I find 2 potential Williams being born 1859 with no Father and 1860 Father John. There were a lot of Peacocks in the village! I can't be sure I'm following the correct line. Are there any still there or is there anyone doing the same? I can see that the name Hills was connected to Ashen as well.

Eastbourne, EnglandPosted by PhilB at 11:26AM on 23rd January, 2017. (

According to information passed down within the family, my great-grandfather (Benjamin Brown) ran a Grammar School in Clare around mid 1800. All information and photos seem to show the school as being in Nethergate House. I know that he was a schoolteacher/headmaster at the Cavendish Endowed School around 1860. I would be grateful for any information. Thank you.

I am searching for birth date around 1709 of Robert Church .
The Clare records ds seem unreadable at around that time.
Has anyone any ideas about how to proceed or to find out anything before Robert left Clare to marry in London?

My name is Michael Rushing. My mother-in-law did an extensive genealogy study on my paternal family lineage. She provided me an 60+ page document which traces my ancestry to a William Rushing, born in 1505 in the Town of Clare, Suffolk, England. I would love to find out if there are any Rushing's that still reside in Clare and maybe start a pen-pal relationship. Of course, I am assuming the genealogy results are relatively accurate. I was really exciting to learn about and trace my family's past.
My step-daughter is currently studying at Sheffield University in Sheffield, England so I do plan to make a trip to Clare in the future. Any information or feedback is appreciated.
Best regards,
Mike Rushing

I have just found this site. I have traced one of my lines back to Clare. My 5th Gt grandmother was born here. She is Martha Webb of Thomas Webb and she married William Crick of Cockfield in 1775.

I love to write a story of each of my family members and would love to find out more about the Webb family of Clare. Anyone who could help??

Looking for info on the Wallett family my 5 times great Grandmother was Elizabeth Wallett of Long Sutton the daughter of Vicar Abraham Wallett of Clare and Mary Mumby/Momby.
Elizabeth married a Thomas Garner and had many children I descend from Mary Garner b1801 Long Sutton.
I have just downloaded the will of James Wallett the father of Abraham Wallett but is very hard to understand old calligraphy writings.
I know there is a Hilary also searching the same family but I can't seem to find her.
