Your Blacksheep-Do they amuse you?
« on: Thursday 30 March 17 13:18 BST (UK) »
 
 My g.gran and her twin brother were constantly in court during the 1880's, and I must admit that

I have to chuckle each time I read about them,but,I doubt if I would find it so amusing if it were

a close family member carrying on like that today.

Time does tend to put a gloss on these things but the good thing about "black sheep" is that they tend to get into far more different records and sometimes help to breakdown brickwalls

As Falkyrn has said finding your Black Sheep records can lead to some very interesting information. My Great Grandfather regularly appeared at the local magistrates court, so much so I have now compiled a rogues gallery for him. The records have given me vital information for places he lived and worked plus family members names.  :)

Millie - you are missing out on so much fun!  :D  Naughty ancestors make my day (to be fair, so does finding an ancestor who led a decent industrious life)

It's amazing how the Newspaper reporters embellished a good old drunken punch up. One title they used in 1903 was 'Worshippers at The Shrine of Bacchus' Some of the fines and costs were exorbitant and I wonder where Great Grandpa William found the money when he had a wife and seven children to keep. :-\

No black sheep in my family, either, but for a rather different reason I fear. When they come to sort the sheep from the goats ... we're all goats!  ::)
