Family link to the Lovells

Lovell family visitAnne Butler (nee Lenton) and her husband Chris visited Titchmarsh on 29th December 2015, hoping to learn more about their early family connections to the village.

Visiting from their home in Devon, Anne brought papers with her including a family tree with entries as far back as the 13th century.  John, the First Lord Lovell, is mentioned on the family tree and it seems that his descendants passed ‘the manors of Titchmarsh and Aldwincle’ to their cousin Thomas Lenton in 1463.

Terry and I showed Anne & Chris around our lovely church, chatted about the history of the village and then walked to the Castle site, which may have once been home to one of their ancestors.                   Sylvia Prestwich
