It's in the September 2nd and 30th, 1870, editions of the Chelmsford Chronicle.

I am new to looking into my family history. How do you discover these newspaper articles ? What is your interest in Joseph Tall. I would love to share any knowledge about him.

Welcome to family history and RootsChat. I find that a good and expanding resource for British and its empire's newspaper articles is BNA, British Newspaper Archive. It is an online resouce that needs a subscription. Your public library may subscribe and allow you free access. I am not uncritical of it but it is the best British newspaper service with 43 million pages.

My interest in Joseph Tall is not a family connection but an interest in early Portland cement base concrete buildings. The Talls were very significant figures in the 1860s and 1870s.

I have sent you a pm (private message), please let me know if you can't see it.

Thank you Deskman. I have not been able to open a private message. I do know he had contacts with Portland cement and lectured in various countries about his building methods. He built a pair of semi detached houses in Kent which I believe are listed. He was also invited to the opening of the Empire State Building in America but did not attend.
My family commitments will not allow me the time to delve into archives at this present time but I am interested to receive any snippets of information on Joseph and his family.
