Russel,

It's amazing what we can sometimes find if we dig  :P

Only yesterday I was researching something for someone & discovered I had a few notes on the person................through info. I've collated over the years from my own family finds (Scottish records which have 3 enties on deaths/ births on each download & 2 entries per marriage download).

I discovered the man had been a guest at a Hotel in Inverness-shire so I looked it up (just my interest as you do)............

Anyway, the hotel has a quest book dating back to late 1800's so I emailed them re the man in question. I got a lovely email back to say the dates they have were from 1890 but my man was there in 1871 but J M Barry had also been a guest there at some time  ;)

I found it all quite interesting & not even my own family  ???

I think it's all really interesting even if it's not your own family, as a wider part of history it's interesting to see what normal people got up to in the past. Amazing that they have a guest book going back that long!

I think with regard to 8 Westgate Street, a visit to Southampton civic library might be in order!

I think it was probably a couple of months ago. It's not far away from St Michael's church where my great x5 grandparents (also Masters) married in 1802 so went to have a look at that and wondered down to Westgate Street too.
