From The Leicester Chronicle 17 March 1855

Caroline Starkey charged Ralph Oldacre with a case of bastardy. The defendant pleaded guilty, and an order was made for 1s 3d per week, with 17s 6d costs.

Have a few Leicester references and on the school age reg. index, his birth is 4 Dec 1903. Also looked for his marriage and it is a register office marriage.

There is a report of an assault by a Jeremiah Withers, shoe hand, Smith's-cottages, Gray Street, 16th Mar 1901 in the Leicester Daily Post 24 May 1901. He was charged on a warrant and ...

had been in jail several days before he was bailed out, and the sentence of the Court now was that he be imprisoned for 14 days with hard labour.

It's quite a long article, noted this bit because of the dates, 1901 census 1 Apr

It is Notts and yes it is a family in Eastwood; it was the cattle market at Meadow Lane he went to this morning which I should have said. I was very curious about the society as there are so many photos with reference to D. H. Lawrence and even a card about a memorial in Mexico.

There is a photograph of the chap, who is pictured with a lot of the memorabilia, next to the headstone for the family

Frances Daisy Akers (Jepson) born 1912 who married George Leonard Akers born 1911...married 1936 Basford reg.
Garry ans S* which is covered by the flowers he has laid.

Have the address for 'Gary' on the postcard and when Frances dies, certainly 3 children born in Notts and I found an acknowledgement online in google books. So sad that everything was jumbled up in the crate.

Nottinghamshire / D. H. Lawrence and Mr. Akers
« on: Saturday 01 May 21 16:03 BST (UK)  »
Hubby came back with photos this morning after a trip to the cattle market and the crate he paid for is full of family history for the Akers family and his photos over time of D H Lawrence memorabilia. A postcard in there dated 1974 thanks Mr. Akers for the newsletter, so before I dive in to find out more, does anyone here have more knowledge about the group or Mr Akers who lived in Eastwood ?

Have googled but wanted to ask here first while I look.

Some of the photos are stamped with local history library P. L Nottingham so I would love to find out more, the family I can research as they kindly took a photo of the Akers grave which has the maiden name of their mother!

Thanks

Had a look in the papers and Ralph H. T. Neale was granted a decree nisi in November 1931, Ralph was  living at 26 Burleigh Street, Sunderland. May I tactfully add, Mrs Neale had met a Mr. Elliott.
