The above links will take you to some 200 old photographs of the village and former residents (see reference map below), plus written records such as census returns. The Morph Movies Page has links to some clever "morphs" produced by Rosemarie Gant. The Written Records Page holds Chrishall family trees, snippets from old gazettes and census details, including Chrishall 'strays' on census night.


This section is not intended to be a detailed history but is designed to give visitors a feel for what life was like in Chrishall during the early part of the twentieth century. It is particularly aimed at the genealogist who perhaps has never visited Chrishall and wishes to visualise the kind of community whence his or her ancestor came. Photographs - especially of people at work and play in Chrishall, are always welcome.
