Framfield Church postcard – another new addition to my collection

29 Jul

Just when you thought you had heard the last about my visit to Framfield, Sussex in May 2009, I have found another excuse to post about the subject. Below is a recently acquired postcard of the interior of Framfield Church.

Framfield Church (postmarked 20th March 1913)

It was published by John Frisby of Uckfield and the postmark is from nearby Uckfield and dated the 20th March 1913. It was sent to Mr F [Fred] WREN of Cliveden Gardens, Taplow, Bucks by his mother, and also mentions Mary and Bertie (possibly Fred’s sister and brother?) in the message.

Interestingly my 3x great grandmother was Charlotte WREN from Framfield (1832-1909) so I am going to have to do a bit of digging and see if I am related to these people.

Naturally the interior of the church hasn’t changed a great deal, here is a similar view taken during my visit in May 2009.
