Formed in 2011, We are a group of like minded individuals with an interest in researching, and sharing the history of our village its people and its places.
We hope to record and archive our findings for future generations.
The group brings together residents and visitors to share and discover anything relating to our village past…. From today, right back to Domesday and beyond!
Our main focus is on the people and history of our parish of East Brent, and the villages within its boundary, including Rooksbridge and the hamlet of Edingworth.
However! Through the ages, people strayed beyond the village boundaries to find work and to marry etc. So too, will our quest to follow families, inevitably lead us to stray into the neighbouring parishes of Brent Knoll, Lympsham, Biddisham and Mark etc! And sometimes far beyond. Even to connections on the other side of the world.
Anyone welcome. No entry or membership fees,
But a small donation towards the cost of hiring the Hall etc will be greatly appreciated.
