My latest postcard: Bolney Church

3 Jun

This wonderful card is the latest addition to my postcard collection, just arrived today from an eBay seller, the church of St Mary Magdalene, Bolney, Sussex.

There are too many of my ancestors connected with this church to list them all, but several generations of GASSONs and WALDERs were baptised and married here, and of course many of them buried here as well.

The card was posted in Bolney, but the date is not easy to read, it looks like 1915, but I can’t be sure. It was sent to Master H. Holden (possibly Hobden) of 111 Church Road, Burgess Hill, Sussex by his father. The simple message reads “We are having a nice walk about here this afternoon”.
