From Ian Parkhouse – 12th January 2018 

I am the great nephew of Frederick Chugg who you have described on your website of the history of West Down. I am trying to find out a little more about my family and apart from my great grandparents being buried in West Down church yard and my great uncles name being on the war memorial, I know very little.

I see a lady called Mary Chugg was involved in the last invasion of Britain. I am trying to find out more about the Chugg’s of West Down but it is hard to find anything.

My great grandparents have West Stowford written on their grave stone. Would you be kind enough to point me in the right direction of finding out more about them?

Many thanks for your time.
