This is a view of our village from the air. Aldbourne, Wiltshire, is situated in an area of outstanding beauty. It nestles amongst the Marlborough Downs approximately 10 miles from Marlborough and Swindon in Wiltshire and approximately 6 miles from Hungerford, Berkshire. We have a village post office and store, a second grocery shop, 3 public houses, a sports and social club, two hairdresser shops, two garages, a picture framer, a pre-school and a Nursery. It is very much an active community spirited village with many different activities and clubs throughout all ages.


Aldbourne. Probably the best-kept village in Wiltshire, as their many nominations prove. Aldbourne is a delightful place to live and where village life has largely remained untouched by the growth of Swindon. Aldbourne's St Michaels Church dates from the 15th Century and has, among many notable features, the finely carved tomb of John Stone (1501). The centre of the village is particularly beautiful with attractive cottages of brick and thatch, a 16th Century courthouse and the old coaching Inn, The Crown, surrounding the village green and duck pond.

Hello Annette,

I am writing from Louisville, KY. Like you I am completely new at this. So new that I just got started when the PRO website came back up. I am beginning to research my fathers side of the family. I am not familiar with the county/region/city designations of the PRO other than that "Wilts" is the abbreviation for Wiltshire County.

My grandfather was a George Coxhead born in 1886 in Wilts Aldbourne. He had an older sister Ellen reported to be crippled from her birth in 1883. George immigrated to the US in 1920 with his wife Elizabeth (surname) Hughes born in 1887 in Lancshire Liverpool. George's father's name was Thomas born about 1852 in Wilts Aldbourne. His mothers name was Hannah (surname possibly Manlove), born about 1852 in Wilts Lambourne. Hannah remarried after Thomas's death to a surname Topping.

Thomas Coxhead (George's father) was a farm worker in Chiseldon at the time of the 1901 census. Would appreciate any leads you may have run across on Thomas Coxhead's parents or earlier relatives. Thanks.
