Hi

I heard several years ago, that part of the duties of the College of Arms were the organising of state occasions.

Mark
"George HOOD of Selby" Before 1812?

Born about 1785 (Yorkshire per 1841 Census)

Married Sarah RUSSELL at Selby 1815 newspaper - "both of that place".

Buried in the Quaker Burial Ground at Selby as "Not in Membership" in 1845, aged 60 years.

George HOOD of Selby was refused Membership of the Quakers in 1836.

Elected Overseer of the Poor of Selby in 1838.

Had both known (Selby) and unknown (some not stated 1846) property interests.

Possible (but unknown) links to COOK and/or PEARSON names.

I also realise that they may be having to work out the position relating to a non British Royal but there have been others in the past.  If in October I had been told it would be at least 3 months that would have been better than totally missing three estimated delivery dates.

I think I shall also have to do that. I sent yet another email a couple of weeks ago, and have had nothing back at all from them.  :(

HI I've had a reply (it does seem that messages on website get through better than emails) the latest delay is due to illness.  I am now promised my report nest week.

HI
My report arrived by email yesterday.   Unfortunately they had less information than I had hoped but has given me some new info and a few leads.
