I have been neglecting my postcard collection a bit recently. I’ve only made a few purchases recently on eBay, and I haven’t actually posted any of my postcards on this blog since the 1st January.
This is a real photographic postcard of St. Andrew’s Church in Nuthurst, Sussex. The postmark on the reverse is not very clear, but it looks like this card was posted in 1915. There are no clues as to who the photographer or publisher were.
The church itself doesn’t appear to have changed a great deal, however the churchyard has changed quite a bit. Most of the headstones have now gone, as have most of the trees.
My family connection with Nuthurst Church comes from Henry and Catherine GASSON who passed through the parish around 1830-40. They had five children baptised here including my 3x great-grandfather Thomas GASSON.
