Diane Taylor, now living in Ashby-De-La-Zouch in Leicestershire, has kindly donated some of her collection of photographic family mementoes. Some, not directly connected to Sutton have been uploaded to various other sections of the site. [see page bottom]
 
Her family connections are mostly with Sutton and Petworth and although her initial interest is in the Sutton area and her grandparents, she would be grateful for any further information regarding her family.

Budds of Sutton

Dianes Grandparents were Ernest Septimus Budd and Florence Budd [nee Wingfield] who married at St Georges Church, Worthing
 
Budds of SuttonErnie Budd was a local blacksmith and, amongst other things, well known in the area for his splendid displays of 'corn-dollies'. A selection can be seen in the 1960s newspaper cutting shown opposite displayed in the White Horse bar at Sutton with Ernie in the foreground. His wife Florence, for many years, when younger, worked as a maid for Lord and Lady Norfolk at Arundel Park who regularly sent them personal Xmas cards each year, a couple of which are shown in the album.
 
From 1912 to approx 1972 they lived at Downview Cottage [now called Budds Cottage] in Sutton until the death of Florence at which time Ernie went to live with family in the Midlands. This was the last time that Diane had visited Sutton when she came to collect him.
 
She has vivid memories of her times at Sutton and recalls - "The photos of the pub brought back memories of being sent there to fetch my Grandad back for his dinner. The last time I was in Sutton would've been 1968-70s and that was to bring my Grandad back to the midlands after my Nanny died. I remember the 'bus shelter' thats in the photo very well, there also used to be an old post office at the top of the road as well although I believe that disappeared in the late 70s."
 
Diane has been researching her ancestry online and has formed a family tree going back to the 1700s "just on my mothers side which is the Budd line, and every male relation of my Grandad was a Blacksmith and most of them were from Bosham, Burpham and Boxgrove."
Her Grandfathers, great grandfather, was a blacksmith at Crockershill-Boxgrove and it seems every male member of the family was a blacksmith, which stopped when Ernie retired.
 
Diane also adds - "I have also recently found out that my Fathers parents, of which I only know their surname of Taylor, worked and lived at Petworth house. Apparently they lived in the lodge at the entrance to Petworth House, he was the " keeper" and also cared for the horses in the stables and helped when the owners went on shoots or hunting, he also manned the gates at the entrance, hence I guess thats why they lived at the lodge. His wife -possibly Alice- was a ladies maid in the house, and one of their children called Fred Taylor was a chauffer and cared for the cars to the owners of Petworth House. My father was born in 1915."
