The Church of St. Peter, Little Cheverell, Wiltshire



We visited St. Peter's church in Little Cheverell on a very dull day in October 2015; it may have been dull and drizzly, but the autumnal colours in the churchyard were beautiful.  We understand the church originally was dedicated to St. Nicholas and the village is also known as Cheverell Parva.  The church has its own website at:  St. Peter's website.

The church of St. Peter is a Grade II listed building - more information about the listing can be found at the  Historic England  website.

Transcribed Census returns for the village can be seen at the excellent Wiltshire Parish On-Line Clerks website:     1841     1851     1861     1871     1881     1891     1901     1911

We were contacted by Peter Baish and invited to a get-together of the Baish family.  The family had for some time met up annually in Great Lavington to spend a day together, share a meal and generally catch up.  Peter also invites a speaker to join them and give a talk about something relevant to where the family have lived.  On the day we were there a local historian talked about Great Lavington and how it used to be in the 'olden times' when villages were self sufficient so had grocers, bakers, butchers and shops for everything people needed; we were treated to some marvellous photographs of various shops and homes.  There was also a trip to Little Cheverell (as some of the family had lived there) and the church was opened specially for the group and we were invited to take photographs.  What a priviledge to be asked to join them!  Peter told us their meetings started due to us (he phrased it 'it's your fault') because he found a relative on our website in a location he did not know the family had been and that led him to do some research and eventually make contact with current family members.  We don't think we should take any credit really, because Peter is the powerhouse behind all the organising for the event.  What he has achieved should be the envy of any family historian!  He had even persuaded the current family to write about themselves and he was to collect all the 'chapters' and put it all together so their future family would know all about them.  Can you imagine how you would feel being handed a book written by your family members a hundred years ago?  Well, the future Baish family will have that pleasure and will no doubt feel very lucky to have had Peter among their ancestors.  Spending a day with Peter and his family was a highlight of our work.  We felt very honoured to be asked to join them and enjoyed it very much.  Thank you Peter.
