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.
The THS had a presence at the Tharston Church Fete on 10th September. It held a quiz to raise funds for the church. There is a winner and HE will be informed shortly.
The THS is currently conducting a survey about how the society moves forward following COVID. Please access the survey here. Your response will be appreciated. (Only appropriate responses/answers are needed!)

New local venture .....

*** Ashwellthorpe History ***

A new website has been started by Jennifer which will record all that can be found about the village of Ashwellthorpe and its history. Starting anything like this can be quite daunting, collecting together and displaying the content. If anyone has additional information that would be appropriate for the site and are willing to share it, please make contact through her website.
