      Dear Jo, apologies for the delay in picking this up. I have no direct information that would help, but you have doubtless tried the basic sources: census etc. For parish records you might try Rev Colin Alsbury who is vicar here and at St John’s Frome. Do you have your grandmother’s maiden name? and do you know if they lived here at all? They may have been married here? All of the village used to belong to Longleat so they may have tenants’ records.
