The website of Leicestershire Records Office mentions Bastardy Bonds. Although it is not possible to see actual names. Might be worth a email or phone call.

The combination of apples and pears would give it a very distinctive flavour. Thank you.

Thank you Mike. I have also wondered if it was the homemade taste that made the difference. As they came from the centre of Portsmouth I suspect they had only tasted processed jam until then.

Thank you. That is a great help. I will look at the mixed fruit option. I suspect that the jam was made up of whatever was available. As you point out plums probably made up a significant amount of the mixed fruit. I will ask about the stones.

Thank you. We wondered if apples may have been added to the plums. Damsons sounds like a good idea and would produce a different taste.
