Mr E’s family originally hales from Dorset. To be more precise from Puddletown and Tolpuddle. We believe that he shares a common ancestor with James Hammett one of the Tolpuddle Martyrs.
The church of St Mary at Puddletown where we have the strongest family connection was a complete delight
with high backed pews
which you can see from above by mounting some rickety rackety steps to the organ gallery
a restored chapel has this lovely stone tomb
From here we went to the church of St John the Evangelist in Tolpuddle
where James Hammett is buried
Thanks for stopping by. Linking in with Inspired Sunday
Lots more churches to share next time from our little expedition in Dorset.
