Traced my Family to this village (sons of Thomas Fish). Three brothers: Nathaniel, John, and Jonathon left East Farndon in 1627 for America. Would be nice to visit someday.

Have just traced my 7xGG Robert Sutton here back to 1600. Looks like a lovely little village.

I used to love playing with my friend Christine Haynes at the farm her father ran with his brother Cyril and sister Phyllis. We helped pick the apples and plums from the fruit trees in the summer and helped stook the hay bales when the bailing was underway. It was a very special time for me and remembered with happiness.My mother(Winnie Woodliffe was a member of the WI, maybe secretary for a while, she also sang in the WI choir which was under the tuition of Mrs Furnish. East Farndon is a lovely village and I hope it never loses the small village quality of life.

Hello, I was in the children's home at East Farndon roughly between the years of 1943-46. If there is anyone out there who was in the same home, roughly around the same time, please contact me.

Very interesting site. Great to know the history of the village that our son will raise his family in.

Hello, My husband and I will be moving to East Farndon over the summer with our 3 young boys (they are 5yrs, 3yrs and 9 months old). We are looking forwards to getting to know the village and wondered if there were any other young families close by? Also, can anyone offer any advice, guidance or pearls of wisdom regarding local primary schools please? Thank you, Carly

I lived at The Dales in Farndon up to the age of 8. My parents (Lorraine and David Jones) and brother Andrew and myself moved to Oxford in1981. I have lots of happy memories playing in the fields, village fates etc. I went to the playschool and later to Clipston primary school. My friends were Ellie Jeffrey who lived in the old bake house and Rachel Weeks who lived up by the church in an upside down house.

i notice the church opposite the school where miss mc dowel lived and taught that brought memories of singing every sunday in church has been demolished . the kids from the home were chosen for our sweet voices,. my other memory is locking myself and another kid in the clock tower at clipston grammar school. that was good . the teacher and police were real worried. .

My wife and I have recently bought spring cottage near the bottom of the village which we are going to renovate it into our family home. Can't wait!! It would be interesting to learn about any history surrounding the house and see any old photographs. Thanks in advance. Rich & Donna

Having traced my ancestors back to East Farndon from the 16th to the 19th century, I visited the village this month out of curiosity. It seemed a very peaceful place, surrounded by countryside and other small villages. I would be grateful to receive details of any social history relating to the Norman family.

Close association with the village for many years.Grandfather,grandmother,Father,mother and youngest brother all lie in the churchyard.Grandfather is mentioned on the War Memorial although he did not die.Mother played the organ as stand in from 1933 to 1950 and I audited the church accounts during the Treasureship of both John Clifford and Ray Clifford.I feel a close affinity with the village.
