George married Maria Laflin and had three sons and two daughters, Myra is the daughter of the youngest son and was given the letters by George's eldest daughter.
The little Nunn Edwin of the letters went to the United States and there are many of his descendents living there. His twin Emma did not marry.
Anna married John Pound Downing of Stanton St Quinton, Wiltshire, they had one son named Robert, and she died in 1888. Then her sister Kate married John Pound Downing who died in 1906.
Emma and Kate lived on until the 1930s and are remembered by George's grandchildren. The family lived at Shepherds Bush and later at Barnes, West London.
Much useful information on Suffolk is to be found on the recently updated and revised Suffolk Surname List together with many links and, there is of course, the Suffolk Family History Society's (SFHS) own site. The Rootsweb Suffolk Mailing List is also well worth joining. For a wider view of genealogy in the UK and Ireland there is 'GENUKI' at: http://www.genuki.org.uk/.

I hope you have a little time to look at the letters and that you find them as interesting as I did when when they were passed on to me several years ago.
