A relative is trying to trace her distant relations, who she believes are still living in the Leiston area.

Claire Archer said: “My great nan Susannah Nunn was born in Leiston around 1884, I think her parents were James and Mary Nunn and grandparents Susanna and James Nunn.

“I believe both James’s work on the land.”

She continued: “My great nan Susannah left Leiston to go to live in London and married my great-granddad Frank Archer in 1907.”

Claire, who now lives in Basingstoke, visited Leiston recently and discovered that there were several families with Nunn as their surname and now she would like to know if any are related to her.
