Wittersham in Kent Village Guide

Edwardian Photograph

The Pilgrims Hospices eBay charity shop has acquired a mounted photo of a formal group of clergy and choirboys dated 1904 and taken by CC Neve of Wittersham. It is dedicated to Mr T Martin ‘In memory of many happy services’ and signed by B Violet Parkes, organist.

Can anyone say if this Wittersham?

    We have a whole batch of old anonymous photo portraits, and some places too, donated to our Ashford shop and perhaps they all have a Wittersham connection.

    Would anybody like to view them in case there’s local interest?

    Hello David,

    I am indeed very interested, especially if there is any connection to the Bull and Hinds family from the village.

    E-mail me on ‘david at clinxx.co.uk’ and I’ll send you scans. Sadly there are no names but you might see family traits.
