« on: Sunday 05 July 09 05:08 BST (UK)  »
Just letting researchers interested in Cannock Chase area Staffs that there is a fantastic book  called " children in the twenties",written by Harry Hartill.I have a phoptocopied version of it that was sent to me by family some time ago,and they obtained it from a school in Cannock.He details families that lived in chase terrace,kids that attended Rugely road school,,chase town,East gate street,references to coal mining etc etc..the palace "picture theatre" near the uxbridge arms.
My Father ( now 84) was mentioned as living in one of the terraced houses along with his sisters and brother the "Arthrells".
Quote: The Victoria Hotel stood on the corner of the high street with a number of terraced houses occupied by the following families:
Mr & Mrs George Stanley,Hopleys,Walkers,Wilkinsons,Wilfox,Harveys,Arthrells,Beardsmores,beddows Websters and Dunns..

« on: Friday 29 September 06 11:20 BST (UK)  »
have any of you found during research that almost like deja-vous , history seems to repeat itself?
For example.
I have always had a fascination for Lewes sussex UK since I went to bonfire night there over 18 years ago.Recent research into a character I have been interested in for several years , places the character in lewes in 1834!!! He was a baker.Wish i had known that when I visited lewes all those years ago. :D
