The Pinchen Family of Market Lavington

Pinchen is a local name in Market Lavington and the surrounding area so it was no surprise when the curator was asked for information by a genealogist about members of this family.

The photo was taken in 1887 and shows three generations of the family. Here’s the documentation that goes with the photo – a wonderful example!
