Thanks Shaun.  I don't have access to Find my Past but the article appears to announce the sale and demise of the pub.  The date of 1917 is at least a footnote to the history I'm putting together.

Thanks Nell

Many thanks for the interesting replies.   However, everything points to The Cellars is no longer in existance.

A relative was the landlord of 'The Cellars' in the  1890s and I would like to illustrate his family history with a picture of the 'Cellars'.  Is the public house still standing?  I've has no success finding a picture - can anyone help?

Thanks for your reply Carole  but I don't have access to Ancestry and it's no longer available in my local library

World War One / Joseph George Folkard 1892-1963

Joseph George Folkard was born in Colchester in 1892. Family records say that in WW1 he served in the Royal Horse Artillery and later in the Territorial Army Force. Also, he was wounded on active service in the Dardanelles.

So many memories of a loved maternal grandfather on this memorial weekend.

Grateful if anyone could expand on Grandad's military records

Hi ShaP

You clearly have too much history to post on this website.   I will send you a PM

Hello ShaP

First, can I welcome you  to Rootschat and can I add I'm doing this research for a family friend of the Drayson family.  Albert's first marriage was to Mary Ann Stone (nee White) in1887 but sounds you have much more about Albert and the Drayson family back to the 17770s.   Yes, please, I would appreciate any records you have on this family

Many thanks for all your helpful relies - but think I've wasted your time.

Albert Drayson born c.1845 in Isle of Wight is in the tree I'm researching and Cecil also features, but not Charles b. 1885 (mmn Russell),   Hence I was trying to find a Drayson/Russell marriage.

I think this is a coincidence of names and dates.   Albert Drayson married Mary Ann Stone (widow) in 1867 in Southampton.   My research suggested a possible second marriage but the mmn of both Charles and Cecil suggest I'm barking up the wrong tree.

Thanks again
