To the best of my knowledge there are no Vineys in Sutton Veny now (and I have lived in the village for 42 years).
There is one in the telephone directory in Warminster.
Where do you live?

It will be interesting to see which shop it was that your family ran. When we came to SV in 1969 there were three shops, one of which included the post-office. Now there are none!
Opposite (well, almost opposite) the church there are several houses, some of which are relatively recent. I suspect your family's house was that now known as 2, Park View. Have you looked on Google Earth Street View?

No, Upton Lovell is a separate village - about 4 miles from SV as the crow flies (longer by road).
