Litchfield, North Hampshire.

Litchfield, where I was born. on an early spring morning. I was christened in the village church of St James the Less where the vicar, the Rev Hamilton Lloyd, holds a well-attended traditional service twice a month.

    My name is Fr. Frowin Reed and I'm a Benedictine monk and priest in the U.S. - I believe an answer was priest at the parish of St. James the Less in Litchfield. Could you tell me what you know of the parish?
    Your site is beautiful.
    Fraternally in Christ,
    Fr. Frowin Reed, OSB

  2. How nice to hear from you. Interestingly, I have also heard from William Reed who also believed that an ancestor was vicar of Litchfield. I will be at church there tomorrow (Sunday 17th) and will have a look at the records. I am not sure if you'll see this, so I'll copy it to what I think is youyr e-mail address
    Best wishes
    PS I have another site which also contains information on Litchfield here
