I read somewhere that the number of left-handed surgeons and solicitors is far higher than the average percentage, i.e. lefties are somehow predisposed to become people-repairers and legal eagles.  ;D

We (I am also a leftie) are apparently also more artistically gifted. Whatever that may mean/lead to...

We had lots of lefties at my grammar school, the majority of whom held their pens with their hand "wrapped around", if you see what I mean. Their handwriting was usually obviously leftish.  :) I hold my pen as a mirror image of a rightie and people are often surprised when they notice I write with my left hand ("But you don't hold your pen weirdly!"  ::))

My handwriting is very big - I cannot write tiny letters, it just doesn't work.  ;D I have trouble getting my signature on the back of plastic cards.  :-\
I think my handwriting is messy, but a lot of people see it differently. Having said that, it is automatically different from the handwriting of people around me here in Germany, so maybe it has a certain exotic quality.  ;D (Dream on...)

I started school in 1968, aged 4. Luckily, nobody ever tried to "cure" me.  ;)
(My mum is a leftie, too. Dad & my 2 siblings are righties.)

Sorry for not replying earlier,  but I have had limited internet access for several weeks ... fingers crossed it has been sorted now.

That's definitely  Trades Overseer   :)

Likely you may already have the following:

From the 1902 NSW Electoral roll for MACQUARIE with polling at Bathurst.
Ann HOSFORD, Peel St, domestic duties
Jonathan HOSFORD, Peel St, Overseer
Sarah HOSFORD, Peel St, domestic duties

You mention “Australian marriage entry from 1908” in your Opening Post.    Err ….. you are confuddling me somewhat.  Surely the snip you posted is from a New South Wales marriage registration as held by the NSW statutory authority – NSW Registry of Births, Deaths, Marriages Registry.  :) I am not aware of a statutory central BDM covering all of Australia. 

From RChat’s sub-board http://www.rootschat.com/forum/australia-resources-offers/
