Hello,

I am trying to find out all I can about 4 houses in Cley called Umgeni, Umtata, Umona, and Umvolosi, can you help?
I'm trying to find out where theses cottages are in Cley as I would love to see them and write about them. Actually, I have found Umtata and Umgeni on the Coastroad, where could the other two be - new names?

Thanky you very much!

Best regards
Hanne Siebers

I am a descendent from the Jarvis/Jary family (Samuel and Adelaide) and would love to know more about the area and my ancestors. If anyone could give me any information to help in my research I would be very grateful. Hoping to visit Cley soon and would love to know if I have any relatives still living in the area. :D :D

Does anyone know why the place is called Cley-next-the-sea and not the seemingly more correct Cley-next-to-the-sea, or Cley-by-the-sea? I noticed a couple of other places called something-next-the-sea around here too - is it a Norfolk thing, or old English? Or laziness? ;)

Hi,
I recently visited Cley---and Stiffkey, Langham, Blakeney,Wiveton, Binham and Letheringsett. All in the pursuit of my roots! Photographed all those village churches and in Cley, the gravestones of some of my Ancestors---the Jary family. I was born in Boldon Colliery, Durham, just a few miles from South Shields, to which my Jary family--gt grandparents-- migrated from Cley/Blakeney in 1881. My researches show I must be related to almost all the people of Nth Norfolk, incl. Baines, Murrell, Fox, Jarvis, Boyce, Davison, Warnes. and many more. Walking in Cley and Blakeney using my imagination as to how things must have been there in that era--the busy port life and the Pubs.
I hope to visit again in the not too distant future, hopefully for a little longer.

As a regular Coastal Coachhopper bus user,I used to chat to a nice old boy with his large black grey hound,which might have been called Major.
He either got on at Cley,Morston or Weybourne and off at Sheringham and then did the return journey.
Sadly I heard a lady saying that the man had died ,months ago,and his black greyhound taken in by a fisherman.
is there anyone who can tell me what has happened to this poor dog,he must be so bewildered,having been rescued by his owner,to now find himself with strangers and I am happy to take him in if he is unwanted. :!cry:

I am trying to trace any relatives of my 3 x gr grandfather who was born in Cley in 1810. His name was William Johnson and he went on to become a coastguard, probably with Ireland as part of his route, as he had a number of children in Wicklow. Did William's parents remain in Cley and if so, are there any other ancestors there?

My great grandfather was Jacob Jary and my great grandmother was Elizabeth, both of whom migrated up the east coast and ended up in South Shields which was then County Durham.
