A Wiltshire Village
Media: DATA CD - 1 CD
Author: A. Williams
Year: (1912) 2003
Wonderful descriptions of life and characters of villages in the South Marston area based on the observations and recollections of the author. It also mentions surrounding villages such as Sevenhampton and Stanton Fitwarren. A particulary interesting chapter covers the workhouse at Stratton St Margaret where the author interviews some of the residents.
The book was written in 1912 so it covers the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
Books such as this are invaluable to the family historian. Although perhaps your ancestors did not live in the area the lifestyle of people in villages all over the county would have been very similar indeed.
