The title says it all. I'm researching the history of pub. I am missing information for the years 1873 to 1878. I'm looking for the full name of the licensee for the Fountain Inn or Royal Fountain Inn, Cleobury Mortimer. I know the surnames - there were two during this period, I just need their first names.

Every other date is covered thank you. Just need information covering these dates.

Now completed. Notified by PM. Thank you contributors.

Essex Completed Lookup Requests / Doddinghurst parish register look up - COMPLETED
« on: Thursday 30 December 10 15:08 GMT (UK)  »
I have a letter dated December 1893 which refers to some wedding celebrations a few months previously in Doddinghurst Church (All Saints). No names mentioned but I know they lived on or near Kelvedon Common.

Could someone look at the 1893 wedding register and give me details of all the weddings, say March to December 1893. I anticipate that as it is a small parish there will not be that many. I have have extensive database of names and addresses and I hope I will be able to identify the couple referred to in the letter.

If there are many names, then I will not impose and will have to visit the ERO sometime.

Thanks in advance.


Update: answer provided thank you

Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Dating an early colour photograph
« on: Monday 28 January 08 09:54 GMT (UK)  »
Your assistance in dating this photograph would be greatly appreciated.

It is a colour photograph which has picture framing tape attaching it to the mount so I am reluctant to disturb it. This is a scan through the glass. The mount is oval at the top.

The photograph is on a thin metal plate or glass 11cm x 8cm. There is some cracking on the back. The scan produces every scratch and mark and when viewed in real life is a lot darker than the scan. The gold watch stands out as much as it does in the scan.

I am not sure who the subject is. It may be two possible people. The subject's age would place the photograph as either circa 1905, or before 1883. It certainly does not appear to be the normal studio photograph of the late Victorian - Edwardian period. The sitter would not be a wealthy person. One was a cutler, the other a shoe maker.

Your views would be much appreciated.

I am currently preparing the Colchester entry for 1848 from White's Directory and have come across a shortened version of a name which I cannot identify. It is probably biblical. Any suggestions?

This is how it appears in the directory:

Temps. Biggs


David Day, said to be born in Hatfield Broad Oak in 1861 - parents Lucy Day and Edward Day.

Any info would be much appreciated.

Thanks Phil
