This snippet suggests that William Whiteside was lost at sea.

There is a death of a Jules Alfred Plummer(1916-1999) in Colchester.Perhaps Julie is a misprint for Jules.

One possible way of answering this might be to consult the Genuki list below and look at the histories of the relevant chapels for dates.

Dublin / Re: Lady Ann of Clontarf?

It looks to me as if her full name is Anne Elizabeth Charlotte Nugent.As she is born in 1839 she seems too young to be the candidate of a portrait taken abroad in 1850,though she is related to the Lady Ann Daly,subject of my speculation.

The Lighter Side / Re: .s.d (Pounds stirling, shillings and pence) multiplication
« on: Saturday 31 March 18 17:11 BST (UK)  »
The reference to the "old groat"(fourpence) reminds me that at one time I think 4d was the cost of a phone call from a public phone box.If unconnected,you could "Press Button B" and get your four pence back.
On a more topical note 3d was the amount I remember that you got back when returning an empty bottle of Corona.
....and at one time(no,not in my lifetime)there were half and third farthings in circulation,originally intended for use in Ceylon and Malta respectively.
