My most commonly occurring male name is William, And the female is Anne. But my nightmare is Thomas Jones and Joseph Jones  :-\

The Lighter Side / Re: International Left Handers Day!
« on: Friday 17 August 18 23:12 BST (UK)  »
I write with my right hand generally, but had to do the 11 plus writing with my left hand because I'd broken my right arm.  That showed that I could actually do most things with my left and I still - at an advanced age - try to swap hands about whenever possible.

My daughter is left-handed, my brother is left-handed, and my uncle (my mother's brother) was also left-handed, as was my father-in-law.  My father (who was not left-handed) came from Middlesbrough and referred to left-handers as cuddy wifters.  Never heard that expression before or since.

That's a new expression GS...never heard that one before  ;D

We have lived in four houses and each one we bought immediately felt right from walking into
It...I realised why some years later, that the lounge was situated left as you entered the front of the property in each one. Not sure if this is just coincidence, but as both myself and my Husband are both lefties it felt right for both of us.

Well it makes Family research all the more interesting to have colourful characters in our tree. In these times he probably would have made a good trade union rep or a politician  ;D ;D

Looks like he was in prison for four months in 1839....the offence looks like Riot and there are four others who appear to be guilty of the same crime. This chap was also born Abt. 1813 the trial was in Staffordshire.

Lint spinner?

Best regards,

That's what I see too....it's not uncommon to see an uncrossed "t" on documents of this age.

More likely to be the Father then as he could well be 46 years of age. Nice clean photo in good condition for its age.

It could be be his son then and could be into the 70s...It would be a Carte de Visite and until the early 1870s the corners were square cut after which they became round in order for them to fit more easily into albums.
