New Zealand / Taratahi Dairy Company A.G.M. 1883
« on: Tuesday 06 February 18 17:48 GMT (UK)  »
The report of this meeting uses the sign e,g. 15 per acre but elsewhere L10 per acre. Is this a printer's error or is there some other significance? Toby.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Berkshire Will of 1560
« on: Sunday 04 February 18 18:15 GMT (UK)  »
I am just about able to read some of the english text, but at the end of the will the text changes to latin. I imagine that this part may well be pretty standard and I might find a likely transcription and even a translation if I knew where to look. Can anyone help? Thanks, Toby.

Other Countries / India.Kalka to Shimla Railway
« on: Wednesday 24 January 18 23:00 GMT (UK)  »
I wonder if anyone is able to identify this railway station which is on the line between Shimla & Kalka?
I have enlarged the one piece which may help although it doesn't mean anything to me.
Many thanks, Toby Webb.

Dorset / Where is it?
« on: Saturday 20 January 18 12:08 GMT (UK)  »
I have looked in vain in trying to identify this church which I believe is in Dorset. Does any kind reader identify it?
Very many thanks for any help, Toby.

Derbyshire / Derby manufacturer of sugar rolling mills
« on: Wednesday 27 December 17 12:07 GMT (UK)  »
I have failed, through all the normal routes, to remember the name of a company in Derby that was making rolling mills for the sugar industry in the 1950s. This heavy industry may have had other products. Can anyone help? Thanks, Toby.

Graveyards and Gravestones / In Memoriam 1917
« on: Monday 11 December 17 17:21 GMT (UK)  »
This seems perhaps the most suitable pigeon hole although paper and not stone is involved.
An In Memoriam announcement in a newspaper concludes with
" Fideli ceria merces".
Two translations I have found  seem entirely unlikely. Are these latin words incorrect perhaps?
Thanks, T.

New Zealand / Boer War Soldier
« on: Sunday 10 December 17 17:11 GMT (UK)  »
From NZ History I read the Boer War details of 7438 Samuel J B Foss and was particularly interested in one of the comments made below that entry. It was made by a Blair McCarthy who said this soldier was the uncle of his grandmother and that she still has his medals. I would dearly love to have a photo of them for Samuel Foss was part of my family. I am wondering if Mr. Blair is a reader of RootsChat and whether he can add to his 2014 comment. Thank you. Toby Webb.

Berkshire / Sexstone & Titchener Links in Coleshill.
« on: Saturday 02 December 17 19:38 GMT (UK)  »
       In 1754 at Coleshill a William Sexstone married a Millier Tichener. It is interesting therefore that in the Coleshill churchyard the grave & headstone of an Ann Tichener d.1851 is close to graves & memorials of James Sexstone d. 1833 and William Sexstone d.1863. Is anyone able to show a family link for these three?  [There are many variations of 'Sextone' & 'Tichener'.]
       Thanks. Toby.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Hannington, Wiltshire occupation.
« on: Tuesday 28 November 17 11:12 GMT (UK)  »
"Male & female servants" are clear enough, but I am having difficulty with the first occupation in this 1841 census entry. I know what I want it to be but do not want to influence proceedings at this stage.
Many thanks for any good ideas. Toby.
