My Mother was born and brought up in Cley, but left the village when she met my Father who was from Leicester. She is now 91 but has many memories of how Cley was in the 1920's and 30's. Her family name was Allen, and her Father Herbert Allen did much of the resoration work on the windmill when it was turned into a private dwelling. As a child I used to stay in Cley during the summer with relatives, it was (and still is) a magical place.

I was in Cley this evening looking for Whalebone House. A friend asked me to take a photograph of the house for her as her ancestors used to run a hairdresser's in the building. I couldn't locate it.

Can you please explain where it is and if it has changed it's name as I will be returning soon to take the photographs.

Many thanks.

Glynn

Although I now live in Portland, Oregon, I grew up in England and many of my father's family lines came from Norfolk and Suffolk. Particularly of interest to me right now are the Boyce and Jarvis family of Cley. The earliest Boyce we have traced is a William Boyce married (we think) to a Lydia Nutt (or Natt) in 1777 who's son Thomas (my 3rd g.grandfather) was christened 9 Feb 1790 in Cley Next the Sea. We don't know of any siblings. Thomas married Frances Jarvis in 1816 and had 10 children. Does anyone know anything about this family? I would love to know if any of the family are still there.

When I told my physio that we were going to Kings Lynn for the weekend she told me I must visit Cley, buy something for lunch at the picnic shop and take it down the beach road she said, buy a mug of tea at the stall and have a picnic on the beach. She could not have recommended anything better, she didn't tell me quite what to expect, but we went yesterday and I'm totally smitten, so much so , here I am researching for a return visit.Such a beautiful place.

Dear Cley Next the Sea,
My name is Nicholas Ross. I am originally from Attleborough, Massachusetts and am descendants of the Chadwick family line. My grandmother was born in England, Lancashire County. At present I reside on the West Coast of the United States in Reno, Nevada. I am presently writing a fiction book that includes your village. I have never been to Cley Next The Sea, but have read much about it via the Internet and decided to use your village as a backdrop for a part of my book, which opens with a scene from St.Margaret's churchyard. I appreciate your Web site and would like to learn more about your village. The information on your Web site has been indispensable. Thank you.

Having grown up in Cley, I have very fond memories of the area, it's good to see such an active website happening. Incidently, you may like to have a look at the website about my families sheep - the flock is named after the River Glaven. Keep up the good work!
