Welcome to Tharston Past

home page picture

Welcome to local and family history data resources and information, based loosely on the area in and around the village of Tharston in South Norfolk, all of which is original work or newly transcribed information. However, solely considering Tharston would be very insular; by also considering the villages close by the overall picture becomes clearer as there are so many links between the families living in the area. Also included are pages hosted for the Diss Family History Society and Thrandeston History Group, and sections purely for the interest of the author.

Tharston History Society

This site is not the official one for the Tharston History Society but some information can be found here.

Their next meeting is on Wednesday, 24th May 2023 with a talk by Andrew Tullett “Norfolk mills - on a stick”. In 2017 Andrew Tullett toured Norfolk and photographed all 500+ of its village signs - he has been researching the images depicted on them ever since. In his talk ‘Norfolk mills - on a stick’ he uses a selection of his photographs to explain the history of the county’s watermills and windmills, alongside stories associated with some of the machines and the people that ran them. - Wacton Village Hall, 7:00pm with refreshments for 7:30pm start.
