The Lighter Side / Surname DUTROY
« on: Sunday 13 September 20 17:26 BST (UK)  »
I seek information on a (probably) Mr A DUTROY  1932 was a director of an Accrington (Lancs)  company called Tattersall & Hindle, or possibly just Tattersall's, manufacturers of 'Boudoir' carpet sweepers.  My suspicion is that he was involved in some way with the house furnishing market Any information on the company will be welcomed.

Lancashire Lookup Requests / Annie Elizabeth ROSTRON
« on: Tuesday 18 August 20 21:42 BST (UK)  »
In trying to identify an artist responsible for paintings of Accrington houses by an artist signing him/herself A E Rostron, I have learned of an Annie Elizabeth ROSTRON,  born in Salford 1913, died in Bury  1983. Could Annie be the artist ? At present I have no other info on her. She numbered the paintings, so I suspect that she was an active artist, likely to be a member of an art society.   

Lancashire Lookup Offers / Offer: Photographs of Wiliam ROSS b 1854
« on: Thursday 21 August 14 11:01 BST (UK)  »
I have 3 photos of William Ross, b 1854. They were taken on his 83rd birthday 3.8.1937.  He may have been born in Liverpool and may have lived in Kirkdale in 1911. I suspect that he may have lived in Blackpool or the Fylde in his later years as I bought them in a quantity of Fylde material.  I will give them to any descendant

Somerset / Rev Eccles J CARTER and Francis SAVAGE born Westbury
« on: Saturday 21 December 13 19:24 GMT (UK)  »
These two men, of similar age, appear in the 1841 census.In later life, Eccles Carter became a vicar, Francis Savage became a sugar refiner.  I have been told that Peter from Hampshire has Eccles Carter on his pedigree chart oin Ancestry, but I have been unable to access this.  I have a book bearing an 1837  inscription by Savage to his friend Carter which I will gladly give to a descendant. Find me on the 'Sales' or the Lancashire section.

For Sale / Wanted / Events / Lancashire Day , 27th November
« on: Thursday 14 November 13 10:22 GMT (UK)  »
In case you are not aware, I bring it to your attention that Lancashire Day is on 27th November each year. On it, a proclamation is made that Lancastrians swear allegiance to the Queen, the Duke of Lancaster, and affirm that we believe that the county's boundaries have not been changed   and still stretch from Dalton to Denton, Hawkshead to Hale........See the website of the 'Friends of Real Lancashire' to learn more......
