We believe that my wife's family was from Westmill and that she may have a distant relative buried at the church. Are there records of burials back to the 1500's? Her relatives were Thomas Richardson and Katherine Duxford. There son Ezekiel Richardson was a Grandfather of her and my children and seeking to find out if they were, in fact, from Westmill. Thank you very much for your time. Jim Varsaci

Webmaster comments   Hi James, You're in good company! We have lots of folks researching Richardson family history and their connection to Westmill. I'm afraid that the historical church records were transferred to the County Records Office, Hertford for safe keeping.

Here are their contact details:

Website: http://www.hertsdirect.org/services/leisculture/heritage1/hals/
Telephone: 0300 123 4049
Email hertsdirect@hertfordshire.gov.uk
Address: Hertfordshire Archives & Local Studies, Register Office Block, CHR 002, County Hall, Pegs Lane, Hertford, SG13 8EJ

In my experience they are incredibly helpful so Id suggest you might contact them.

We do have a local historian that has documented some of the local links (including burials in another local church at Braughing). I'll get a copy and have a look through for you.

Best wishes

Hello, I've tried to get in touch but my emails to the Contacts are rejected automatically as the system is marking them as a virus. I'd like to visit the church in a few weeks, as I have a family connection. Could someone in the Friends get in touch and I can make my request of them? Many thanks.

I recently completed a social history based on diaries in my family archive. My great great grandmother Harriet Smith from Westmill married George James Sparrow of London and held the copyholding of Brickendonbury manor from 1842 to 1847. George was a graduate of the Royal College of London Veterinary school in 1839 and in 1847 moved to Torquay. Harriet and George had three sons and emigrated to NZ in 1857. I have no further information about Harriet other than her parents were Harriet and James Smith of Westmill or Ware. Are you able to clarify if this is a Westmill family if possible? Thank you.

I have the Guy Ewing book if you haven't managed to find anyone else with a copy. Happy to email you the photograph. Also, check out the Westmill album on my Facebook Community Page Buntingford In Old Photographs for old photographs of Westmill.
