Hello,

I am trying to find out all I can about a house in Cley called Umgeni and the cottage next to this called Umtata as the famous war poet Rupert Brooke was staying at the latter when WW1 was declared in 1914 - he was visiting his friends, the poet, Frances Cornford and her husband Francis Cornford [Cambridge professor] who were living/staying at Umgeni.

I'm trying to find out where theses cottages are in Cley as I would love to see them - I don't suppose you know of them?

With best wishes,
Lorna Beckett

We go to our Caravan in North Norfolk all year long & one of our favourite places is Cley. We park up at the community centre to walk around the village, or to the new bird centre. The best day out though is to walk to the point and walk along to see the seals. Then back to Cley & if in time into Cookes for one of their delicious soups.
Will be bringing the Grand kids this year as we know they'll love the freedom there.

Hi
Like many of your letters I am delighted to see the contents of your website. Whilst I was born and bred in Sheringham my ancestors had their roots in Cley and despite other folks mentioning their family roots I thought in such a small place there would not that many folks whose name was not High (or Caston High or vv). Years ago
visiting the area I saw a shop with High on it and he told me that Highs were amongst the folks who fled from France...anyway they probably go back to the 1700s Hopefully now we know my Family had its origins in Cley we will return soon to spend time to appreciate the same. Again congrats on a splendid website Malcolm

Found your website whilst looking for accomodation around North Norfolk coast. Impressed with the site, very crisp and clear, easily readable, hope you can build it up even further.
One minor problem that I would point out, it would be most useful to be able to link straight through to any of the businesses listed. I was interested in the George Hotel, but I had to come out of your site and look for the website of the George elsewhere.
You may well be aware of this shortfall and are correcting it as and when you can, in which case it will be an excellent site for info on Cley.

I came upon your website by accident looking for information about Cley. My great-great grandfather, THOMAS LEWIS,was a mariner from Cley who ended up at Seaham Harbour, Co. Durham. I have traced back two further generations. His father was Francis who married twice whilst his was another Francis who had three wives and 19 or 20 children in total so there must be quite a lot of descendants. I did pass by your village on a coach trip whilst staying at Cromer but that was before I had taken such an interest in the area. From looking at the census of Seaham the were a number of men from Norfolk who settled in the area, not uncommon considering the link with the sea. I doubt if I will visit in the near future but will keep an eye on what is happening in the area.
Your site is very clear and welcoming, easy to navigate and a pleasure to use. Thank you.

A friend put me in contact with your website and it is beautiful. My wife and I are planning a trip to England to get acqainted with our roots. We will be visiting Cley. Well done!
