Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

" I think this lady makes the point better than I can. Journalism Thanks Tripps....

Re: Willie Taylor Schoolmaster

Having looked at the census returns I'm sure that it's the same William that goes to Salford. Is it John who passed away in the full tide of his powers? There is quite a gap between Rebecca getting pregnant and William turning up in Salford, the secret of Isabella's father could have been kept for y...

Re: Willie Taylor Schoolmaster

I think so Amanda. One of our Earby History Society members is currently researching the history of the Methodist church in Earby for a book. I will contact her to see if she has any information on the teachers at the Wesleyan school.

Re: Willie Taylor Schoolmaster

Amanda, don't forget that the reference to Isabella's father being a school master is on her marriage certificate not her birth certificate! By the time of the marriage he was (or had been). There is only one other William Taylor in the locality around that time and he was a weaver.

Re: Willie Taylor Schoolmaster

Hello Amanda and welcome. The article you refer to was one of series of articles written for the Craven Herald in 1935 by John Hartley under the heading of Earby of Long Ago. They were transcribed by John Turner and posted by him on an older version of One Guy then reposted on here by Stanley after ...

Re: PET'S CORNER

Yes, they are getting a good slurp in their tea every day. I'm tempted myself, it smells delicious! Not sure if it has soaked into the ponies enough yet to be effective. :laugh5: Years ago I used to use dried garlic in their feed all the time and you could smell it when you picked out their feet! It...

I hope so Cathy, it's too misty for me to see them down the field but I can just see one white shape! It took 20 minutes for them to settle after the fireworks went off at eight last night.

Leaving the ponies out tonight for the first time since the end of October. I don't know why I get so anxious about it but I do! They have been in for some tea, and Dennis has had his drugs, the worst that can happen is that the sheep take the electric fence down and they get into next door' s field...
