The Suffolk Villages Site is dedicated to those whom were brought up in the harsh life of Suffolk, often as agricultural labourers, who endured the hardships that we hopefully do not know now.
This site is also a sign of respect to all those whom have helped me in my search for an ancestry in Suffolk. In particular to Ray Long who ran the Cosford database in Suffolk, and is distantly related to me. I have found fairly substantial sections of the Cosford database which are now on this site, they are good, but not complete, and I have no intentions on updating any of the detail.
The Suffolk Villages site will eventually encompass every Suffolk Village and Town, but bear with me - I also have a life. For the impatient, visit the Links page to see the work already done on Suffolk Public Houses. with Essex at Essex pub history
Here is a brief description of Suffolk according to the Suffolk 1830 White's Directory; this is transcribed by Colin Ager, whom has helped me with many other census details for the site.
