Suffolk History Resources

I am a born and bred East Anglian – born in Ely and lived for the first few years in a fen village within sight of the Cathedral. My family moved to Suffolk when I was five years old and I grew up in the county in villages near Woodbridge, then, after time away at university and abroad, living later in Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds.

Having lived in the northern England for the last decade, it has been a joy to me to move back to this beautiful county with my young family and to be able to introduce them to the places I loved when I was a child. But, I find that there are big gaps in my knowledge.

This site is an attempt to pull together some historical resources about Suffolk which will help fill in those gaps.

If you stumble across the site and find it of use, that is great too.
