The Great Migration to New England 1630-1640 by Douglas Carter
In 1630, Boxted's vicar, Reverend George Philips led 30 of his congregation to join about 700 others from East of England in a hazardous migration to "the Promised Land" of New England on the East Coast of North America.
This book is a valuable resource for tracing relatives from this area of the Stour valley and the village of Boxted.

No lengthy sermons or fire and brimstone preaching.... itís just a great opportunity to get together and blast out. In aid of the church youth work.
The W.I. Resolution to Stop the Decline of and to Revitalise High Streets was discussed and agreed upon at the May meeting. The AGM followed, during which Mary Mould, Retiring President, was thanked for her three and a half years in office, and Jos Carter, as she retires, was thanked for her four and a half years as Treasurer. A new Committee was formed with welcome extended to three new members. Sue Carbutt was elected as President for the coming year. Refreshments and chat completed the evening. The flower of the month competition was won jointly by Margaret Chapman's Camellia and Shirley Field's Clematis. Instead of the usual type of meeting in June members will visit Arger Fen, followed by an optional meal or drinks at a local hostelry.
