Yorkshire (West Riding) / Re: The Fleece Inn - Elland
« on: Saturday 21 July 18 19:02 BST (UK)  »
Todmorden Advertiser and Hebden Bridge Newsletter, 30 Aug 1878

"Mr Rhodes applied that the licence of the Old Fleece Inn, Elland, should be transferred to Mr Thwaite of the Fleece Inn, Greetland, who is now in possession; and Mr Storey applied that it should be transferred, for the benefit of creditors, to the receiver in the affairs of the late tenant, William Crossland. The Bench adjourned the matter to the 14th September, hoping that an amicable arrangement could be made in the meanwhile".

The Bradford Daily Telegraph, 30 Sep 1878, reported that Mr Thwaite, who was already in possession, was successful in his application.

There was also a girls boarding school at Dunmarklyn, South Road, principal Maud Syson. The 1911 census has about 30 boarders. Later newspaper items  (1912 and later) refer to 1&3 Worlebury Road.

The Game Law Act 1831

http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/Will4/1-2/32/enacted

see clause II

Had a look at Hansard where it was proposed the clause should also include "rabbits, woodcocks,snipe, quails, landrails** and conies".

** Pointed out to the proposer it should be "waterrail".

There's a 22 July 1764 Broad Hinton burial for an Elizabeth Hughes - do the baptismal dates for John and Elizabeth rule out this possibility? Else

Elizabeth Hughes, bur 5 May 1790, Broad Hinton, wife of John

You'll appreciate the absence of age at death doesn't help!

transcriptions

Thomas Rogers, 22 Jan 1661, Broad Hinton
Thomas Rogers, 22 Jan 1662, Broad Hinton

I suspect the double entry may be caused by the old practice of recording the year April - March (not Jan-Dec)
