Lancashire Lookup Requests / Re: Ying Tchong, Liverpool Cafe Proprietor, 1949

Just checking that the cafe was in Liverpool? Strangely there was also a cake shop/tea rooms at 105 Upper Parliament St Nottingham in 1925/6. (Some advertisements for staff, though it doesn't say who the proprietor was).

There are a number of mentions of Stafford College, Forest Hill in the newspapers, including:

"Stafford College, Forest Hill - The success of the Head Master since 1854 and the confidence placed in his system by those who have supported it for periods much beyond the usual average, afford a guarantee of soundness of the moral, physical and educational training which pupils receive."

The Times, April 22, 1869


"Stafford College, Forest Hill S.E. From 1870 to 1876 the average number of pupils was 63. Present number 71. Preparation for Matriculation, Locals &c, Of 79 sent up, only three failed. As the chief objects aimed at have always been to preserve a high tone, and to secure habits of industry,  youths who require correction of moral errors are not received."

The Times, August 4, 1877

Quite a few more of similar ilk, love some of the expressions eg "Great success with backward boys"

Getting a bit off track from "Keeler Hall" here, but found this interesting snippet about Humphrey BURGOYNE in "English Catholics and the Supernatural, 15531829" by Francis Young

I was not aware that Ann Fernell was Nee Burgoyne it explains a lot.


I love looking through old newspapers!  ;)

"Yesterday was married Mr William Fernell, of Rotherhith, a Gentleman of large Fortune, to Miss Nancy Burgoyne, of the same place, one of the Co-heiresses of Humphrey Burgoyne, Esq, deceased, a young lady of distinguished Qualifications to make that State happy, with a fortune of 12000 l."

General Advertiser, Friday, December 9, 1748 (and a few other newspapers of the time too)

Modified to add:
Using the National Archives Currency Converter, 12000 pounds is the equivalent of approx 1.4 million pounds, so no wonder she was well qualified!
