  1. I do remember the exercise books with all the information on the back..rods, poles, perches etc. I just wondered when they would come in handy! Before I took the 11+ we did "mock" exams and my mum took me to Andrews (my favourite shop at that time) to buy some revision books.
  2. My mum saved these cards as I was the first in our family to pass the 11+. Still in pristine condition after all this time.....
  3. Thanks so much for that. I can see where the area was now. Jenny
  4. I have found the Hague family in 1851 and their address simply says "The Manor". Close by is Manor Wood Pitts and Manor Oaks. Can someone pinpoint this area on a map for me please? many thanks Jenny
  5. Posted it's name...didn't see earlier posts...doh...
  6. Great to see the old menu. I had a Saturday job at Wimpy at the bottom of Cambridge Street in the 60's. My job was to clear the tables and wash the dishes and on a few occasions I got to cook the burgers. Two of my daughters also had jobs there in the 80's/90's. Brings back memories....
  7. Thank you for your reply Hugh. Albert was in and out of prison many times as you found out. I have been trying to piece this family together for many years and I "think" I might have cracked it. It appears Harriet had at least 3 illegitimate children, some being registered as MCCALL even though she wasn't married. In 1904 the children were put into the Children's Homes and Sarah Elizabeth was sent to America. I was wondering if the Petty Sessions might hold a clue as to her non payment of costs? Jenny
  8. Will give it a go, thanks. Just wondered if there were any court papers I could look and where I would find them.
  9. My great grandmother Harriet Beatson nee Bray was sent to Wakefield prison in 1903 for 4 days for "non payment of costs". Does anyone know where I can find further information? I have looked in the newspapers at the time but found no mention of her. many thanks Jenny
  10. Hi Gemma I've found a couple of articles relating to the sale of his premises and household goods but I can't attach the file. I'll send you a PM. Jenny The one I have found has business premises at Whitecroft and lives at Corn Hill. Are these 2 different people?
  11. If you let me have your email address I'll send them to you
  12. There are some newspaper reports of "A Bit of Brass" on Find MY Past if you have a subscription Jenny
  13. I found the information on his attestation record to join RFA in 18/08/1919 and at the end it said Discharged 17/08/39 Para 510 (viii) KR
