Dykeses and Chestneys

More memories of old Stanhoe families.

We recently received some fond memories of the Dykes, Chestney and Tuck families from Bea Lloyd, who lives in North Walsham and has been reading the All Saints’ churchyard survey compiled by Gillian Beckett and her mother in 1980.

You can read Bea’s notes on a new page in our families section.

“I found many interesting memories among the gravestones that someone had wonderfully recorded. What an amazing thing to do for people,” Bea says.

“My Dad used to visit the graves regularly, bringing me with him, but since his death nearly 40 years ago I haven’t got back through as often as I would like. We are a distance away in North Walsham and for many years I didn’t drive. My Dad wanted to be buried there with his family too but he died relatively young, very unexpectedly, and it wasn’t possible.”

“However, I do drive now and I am a grandmother myself. In the next few weeks I will be bringing my three young granddaughters to visit your lovely village and show them where their ancestors came from (COVID-19 safely of course!)”

We look forward to seeing Bea and her family in Stanhoe soon.
