Hi. Your website is fascinating, and I stumbled across it because there's a headstone for Bartholomew Aldwinckle in Foster Hill Road Cemetery, Bedford, and he died April 15 1888 in his 73rd year, and also his wife Amy who died July 16 1888 in her 72nd year. It was such an ususual name that I Googled it. I hope this information can fill a gap. Best wishes and keep up the good work.

I was very interested to read of my great granduncle Stephen Stacey and my 1st cousin, twice removed, Eliza Stacey and her marriage to Vincent Cook. I also enjoyed the descriptions of Watford, where my uncle Charlie lived with his wife Elsie East. We lived in Borehamwood, where dad (Edward John) worked in the local film industry, as did two of our (Stillwell) cousins.
Many thanks and best regards,
Eddie Stacey

We have the Corder name and I wondered if there was a family tree to see whether we have a direct link to William Corder at all? My father in laws middle name was William and he always told us it was after a famous descendent.
Many thanks

I am sure our paths must have crossed at some stage as I was at Alderman Newtons from 1958-1966.I found myself on your school photo.
I am interested in what information you may have on Flora Street, off King Richards Road. My grandparents lived at no 3.
Anything you can provide would be appreciated.

Hi I came across your website after a google search for Freckleton. I have a photo of a gentleman who lived in Long Eaton dated 1907. The branding says 'Freckleton 63 Long Row Nottingham. And at Long Eaton' Do you know their address at Long Eaton? Also your page says that Freckleton moved his studio - does that mean that the Nottingham studio closed? It's not all that important but I'm curious!

[The reference to Freckleton & Co was made by Brett Payne in response to some photographs that were submitted to him for identification purposes. He has made similar references on a page on his own website at Derbyshire Photographers' Profiles. Frank Day (1870-) of Heanor & Derby. - Ed]

My family appeared in Cottingham around 1710 when William Astell (or Astill) married Mary Bradley. His son, William, was born there in 1712 but moved to Rockingham to marry Sybella Clow. I believe that his siblings remained in Cottingham. I am currently updating the family history and looking for additional information.

This is regarding the bibliography of WH Lane Crauford, novelist. You have listed 49 books. Can you tell how many are mystery novels and which are they ? Is there a series detective ?

[We know of 26 Novels, actually. There is a biography of WHLC, including a personal review of three of the titles, in the PURPLE pages at: WH Lane Crauford - Novelist.. - Ed]

Hi, I'm so excited to come across your website as Frederick Claypole (Belper, Derbyshire) was my Great Grand-father. I'm currently researching my family tree and have gone back as far as the 1500's. It's brilliant to find family connections online and I'll be following your newsletter with interest. I'd love to connect with you further. I look forward to hearing from you.

These are some facts about Frederick Claypole.

He was born on 21st July 1899 in Milford, Derbyshire. His father Alfred was 40 and his mother Emily was 38. He married Edith Lewis on 10th August 1918 in Belper, Derbyshire. He died on 23rd December 1974 in Derby Hospital. They had 3 children. His daughter Jessie was born on 11th February 1920 in Belper and died in September 1940 in Belper aged just 20. His son Edwin was born on 12th May 1922 in Belper and he died in October 2000 in Babington Hospital, Belper. His son Vernon was born in October 1935 in Belper and now lives in Western Australia.

Hi, I wonder if you might help me. I moved into my house in Corby Road Cottingham in 2019. My house is accessed via a pathway from Corby Rd which leads to the rear of The Royal George Pub, my house is attached to the pub. Unfortunately I have no deeds for my property and am trying to find out some of its history......approx age, was it always a cottage, could it have been part of the pub or an attached outbuilding. The rear of the house is on Blind Lane and very close to Barrack Yard, as was. I love local history and have really enjoyed reading about Barrack Yard.
Hoping you can help.
Kind regards......Lesley
