Blackmore Area Local History forum.

Do you have a question about the history and heritage of the Blackmore area of Essex?
Did your ancestors live in Blackmore?
Were your relatives buried at Blackmore after 1893?
I might be able to help or put you in contact with someone who can.

Some notes
* I have set my Google Blog to allow anyone to send a ‘comment’. However it will not be automatically published but sent to my personal E mail box first. This should eliminate spam and safeguard the site from those who would want to post unsuitable material or comments. I want this to be a friendly site, suitable for school children doing projects and for parents to be happy with the integrity of everything posted.

Hi Andrew,
I have just discovered that my great grandfather , Daniel Walker, was the publican at the Prince Albert in 1906 & 1908. He died on 27 May 1912 aged 66 and I wonder if you have a record in your burial transcripts. Your website is quite amazing - your passion for your hobby shines through, keep up the good work.
regards from sunny NSW Australia

I am trying to find information about how SWALLOWS CROSS got it's name for my father.
Information I've found so far, indicates that the area might have once belonged to a FRANCES and ANN SWALLOW (their names are metioned in archives dated 1657 and 1768 and possibly named after them and may also have been part of THOBY PRIORY ESTATE.
I have enjoyed reading your pages very much...thank you
