I am pleased to see a Letton village website very well done i would be interested to no how the name originated as we find it very hard to trace family history

Thank you for the generous access to your site and beautiful church. My visit was part of some research re: 4 churches in your area. It has been absorbing and encourages us to return and to try to learn more

Thank you Derys for suggesting I look at your village website. I was very impressed and will be suggesting that my village follows your example.

I'm looking for any relations to an Edmund Waring who leased Old Letton Court in the 1700's, and his son Thomas leased it after Edmund's death. Would love to hear from you.

It is interesting to find a village with the same name as my family name. I would love to know how the village was named.

NB: Saxon words 'Ley/Lea' mean clearing and 'Ton/Tun' mean House/Farm/Settlement so perhaps Letton means 'settlement/village in the/a clearing'.

Your website was sent to me by Kathy Cameron and I so loved seeing Letton. This site is surely a labor of love and so well done. Next time we visit the UK we will surely visit in person. I didn't notice if you had B&Bs though. You can visit our country inn at www.conyershouse.com .

I was and am absolutely delighted to see the website up and running. I learned more in the period it took me to peruse the site than I learned in the years I and the children were domiciled in Letton. Its part of our history and thank you for bringing it to light.

Great looking through site. My mother grew up in Letton during and after the 2ndWW. She lived with her Grandparents (Buried in the church yard) who lived in a farmhouse called the Vallots I believe. If anyone has any info if the farm still exists I would love to here from them.

An excellent web-site. I'd love to see more pictures of the old school house. I believe it closed in the 1950's. If anyone has any pictures then please e-mail me on I'd love to show my children what their house and the pupils looked like when it was still a school.

Good to see Letton on the global village network. Little difference when compared with the Domesday Book except in presentation.

It's wonderful that Letton is world famous at last. My mum's pictures look brilliant, as does all of the site.
