  CANAL COAL BOATS.—Apply to Mr. John Hambridge, Cassington Wharf, Ensham, near Oxford

Thursday 13 August 1908
  Banbury Advertiser
  Oxfordshire


 The following canal boats registered  “Emma” for Mr. Thomas Hambridge. Banbury;  “Ocean.” for Mr. Henry Hambridge. Banbury . and “William ,” for Mr. William Hambridge, Nuneaton. Alderman Cooper seconded, and humorously commented upon the naming of canal boat as  “Queen of the Ocean. I suppose it refers to the time when we shall have a Ship Canal in Banbury. Chard said be remembered a boat being named “Mind your  business”. (Laughter). The report was adopted.

  A WIDE RANGE
 It appears that many modellers cannot get away from their work, for a model of a narrow boat, used on the canals, was made by Mr. J. Hambridge when he was not fully occupied with his  Canal barge. True to life and tradition, it bears the colourful decorations of the real thing. The exhibition contains a wide range of exhibits, and besides the usual, but none the less splendid models of locomotives and steam engines………

Just one more words

never forget the Dead


I have read that the Oxford Canal was extended In 1788, the canal company bought the local watermill, demolished most of it, and built a row of cottages in its place next to the canal, it was known as salt row. There were two public houses, the Axe which is now the Boat Inn, and the Three Horseshoes which closed in 1924, the Britannia opened on the main Banbury Road. It has since been renamed the Jolly Boatman
Below you will see how the Inn can now be traced to a cotage, all Hambridge People must vissit this place, then on the next link they have several landlords or tenants of this inn but no one knows of the Hambridgers

There was evidence to show how they fell into the Canal, but it was supposed that Joseph Boyes, the youngest, had first fallen, and that his brother John, in endeavouring to get him out, had fallen in also. From the evidence of Emma batts, daughter of the constable of Thrupp, it appeared that about half-past two o'clock on Saturday afternoon she was walking down the Towing-path, and saw Joseph Boyes floating in the Oxford Canal, near the Wicket Gate in Thrupp parish; she immediately told Elizabeth Aries, wife John Aries, blacksmith, and publican, and Mrs. Aries went out of her house and saw the child floating, but did not attempt to get  him out. Her husband was not at home. After seeing the child in the Canal, she went into her house, and told a man who was there that there was a child in the water; he went out and saw it, but did not attempt to get him out.
