For occasional articles, snippets and announcements by the Resident Historians.These articles are presented in date order, but if you explore the back-catalogue, you may find much of interest. Historical information doesn't really go out of date! Any member of the F&DLHS may add an entry or make a comment to an existing entry once they have got their userID and password from the Webmaster.

If you'd like to publish any interesting material about the history of East Anglia on the site, then please send an email to the Resident Historians at and we'll add it.

Family Historians have their own area on the site, so look there if your main interest is in tracing your family history.

'Chummy' Catton and friends

Recently, a photograph of Sudbury sale yard in early fifties came to light. The old fellow in front staring at the implement is George (Chummy) Catton of Belchamp St Pauls. He was born in 1873. No-one we know can recognise any one but him. Please can anyone help identify the others?
