Thank you for a most informative and well researched website.  Teaching about the local areas you have written on has allowed me to draw much research for my students to explore about their own suburbs and heritage. You have saved me hours of work!

Just a bit of Wibsey My gt grandparents were the Butler and ladies maid to the Jump family at the Chantry house and lived in the little gatehouse. Albert Phillips. It is said that he had the keys to the wine cellar and that when he laughed in the cellar you could hear him all over the house.... from my research he also had other traits that were a bit naughty.....his son (also Albert) had only a 6 month gestation ha ha

Through historical search of my father's ancestral background I traced his root back to Ipswich, St. Elizabeth, Jamaica, West Indies. My father who is now deceased was born and raised in Fyffes Penn, Brompton, St. Elizabeth. His father's mother came from Ipswich and his father I understand was related to the Ipswich's of St. Elizabeth. I don't know a lot, only bits and pieces. I am hoping to piece things together. Any information will be helpful. Thank you for posting the information on the sight. Very helpful and informative. Hope to hear from someone soon.

I am a bit surprised that Percy Edwards does not get a mention and there is no blue plaque where he was born in Fore Street. .

I'm originally from Ipswich Suffolk but have visited Ipswich Mass in about 1996 and Ipswich QLD in 2011. If you'd like I could dig out some of my photos and souvenirs.
