Can you help. My name is Harry Masterson and I would be most grateful if you could kindly help me with tracing my well known ancestors who lived at Long Thatch in Collingbourne Ducis.  My main interest is the family of Robert and Jane (nee Carter).  Robert had produced the Suffolk Corn Drill and had a thriving business when both Robert and Jane died 20/5/1888 and 4/3/1888 respectively leaving 4 sons.  First child died 31/3/1868.  James Robert born/baptised 26/4/1872 (buried in St Andrews ChurchYard) - John George bap. 10/11/1874 - Christopher Edward born/baptised 26/11/1877 and Harry Gerald born/baptised 7/12/1883. At the time of their death the foundry was sold by the local school teacher to Bourne Iron Works and the children were left with a small amount of money as the eldest child was just 17.  Does anyone in the community or there are records of what happened to Long Thatch after Robert and Jane died as it appears to have disappeared from the family? I appreciate it was a long while ago but hope there is some record that may be able to help me in my quest for tracing what happened to these young boys and the family home.
