Hunting down my Heritage by Jessica

Hi, I am a descendant of Gladys Mary Clissold, born at Chestnut Hill House in Nailsworth about 1890, who married Frank Southon and went to Somerset in South Africa. I live in Australia, and am coming to the UK in May/June, and would love to find out more about my heritage including Chester Hill House and any remaining relatives in Nailsworth area.My email address in jessica.vivien@gmail.com

I don't know if this has any connection to your family, but when I was growing up in Nailsworth in the 1950s there was an elderly lady who I only knew as Mrs. Clissold. She lived in a cottage at Egypt Mill with her husband who was bedridden and later died.

She had a grandson who was one of our "gang". His name was Brian Simmonds but I haven't set eyes on him for years.

I hope this helps.

I think Steve is right and the information you seek maybe found in the family tree section held in the Nailsworth Archives.

good morning Jessica

By one of those roundabout threads that seems to wind through local history research, I found your 2012 email to the Nailsworth website. I have recently discovered quite a lot about young Gladys, her schooldays at Roedean (v posh boarding school) and have scanned some of the poems she wrote as a young woman (it's a long story). Do please get in touch if you would like to see them.

I'm a member of Stroud Local History Society (a few miles from Nailsworth) and my present research is about domestic activities here during WW1. An album found later at Chestnut Hill House contained the signatures of soldiers who were treated there when it was a Red Cross hospital. It also contained Gladys’ poems.

kind regards, Marion Hearfield
