Makes sense, not heard worry used in this sense before.

Thanks all.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / "Worried by an ass"?

This is a burial record for a relative, 1823 in Woodborough, Notts.

In the margin it looks like it says "worried by an Ass". What could this mean??

The Common Room / Re: FindMyPast BlackFriday Deal - doesn't work!

I had the same problem. I contacted FindMyPast and they sent me a different promo code to use, which worked fine for 25% off.

Not sure I should post the code publicly, but I can PM the code to anyone who wants it.

Hi John,
Unfortunately I don't think this is Maggie. I know that my Maggie was born in 1897 in Saltby, Leicestershire, daughter of Joseph Everitt and Emma (nee Burton). She is in Nottingham on the 1901-21 censuses.

Thanks,
Alexander

Hi Monica, thanks for looking into this. I too thought that Maggie might be possible but ruled her out for the reasons you say. The search continues!

We have no photos of Harry, and I was just searching the newspapers again for any more information. To my great surprise I found a photo of Lincoln City club in the Lincolnshire Chronicle in August 1921, which names all the players. It's not high resolution, but might be the only photo I will find of Harry.

Hi Spelk & hanes teule,

Thanks for these additional pieces.

I heard back from Darlington FC with a bit more information about Harry's time there (thanks for that suggestion Spelk). Confirms that he joined Darlington from Lincoln City in summer 1923 and played 14 games with them until December 2023.

I have just received Frank's death certificate:

13 Aug 1927, Sanatorium, Gilroes R.D.
Frank Hall, male, 4 yrs, of Ullesthorpe R.D., son of Harry Hall, Professional Footballer (deceased)
Cause of death 1a Tuberculous meningitis, b Tuberculous hip joint. No P.M. Certified by H. Stanley Banks, M.B.
Registered 15 Aug 1927 by M. Everitt, aunt, of Rowsley House, Rowsley St, Leicester.

Was hoping Maggie might have been the informant, but no luck.

I know Frank is buried in Beeston cemetery in the same grave as his father, Maggie is not with them.

Will have to investigate the aunt M. Everitt - but got to go for now.
