Thomas F Blower, my 12th Great Grandfather 1520-1568, came from Lavenham in Suffolk England. Lavenham is a charming town. One of our sons lived in Ipswich for several years and we visited nearby Lavenham one frosty day in December. Lavenham was a wool center in medieval times and I especially enjoyed the displays regarding weaving and spinning. Right now I can’t find my photos from that time but here are a few relating to weaving and spinning.
