At their first autumn meeting members heard Memoirs of a Suffolk Gentleman from Guy de Moubray. Mr de Moubray's family dates from the 12th century. Later descendants, the Earls of Arundel, moved into Suffolk and had family links (through marriage) with Roger de Bigod of Bungay Castle.

At their first autumn meeting members heard Memoirs of a Suffolk Gentleman from Guy de Moubray. Mr de Moubray's family dates from the 12th century. Later descendants, the Earls of Arundel, moved into Suffolk and had family links (through marriage) with Roger de Bigod of Bungay Castle. A later Roger de Moubray went to the Crusades; his family, the speaker's distant cousins, once living in Framlingham and Orford Castles. Guy wrote his own history four years ago and has since published a couple of cookery guides with recipes.

Latterly, Mr de Moubray realised that Buxlow Manor had great potential for tourism and entered the “Open to View” scheme, and is still actively welcoming guests for short talks and guided tours. No stranger to technology at 84, he runs a comprehensive personal website: www.buxlow.com.
