I am trying to document everything I can find on my Family History. I am now having a close look at my Liddiard tree and adding more details to the family story. Luckily a Liddiard get together is being arranged for August 2016, hopefully I will be there to meet some distant cousins. Also I'm busy checking my Northamptonshire ancestry as most Northamptonshire Parish Records are now on Ancestry.

If you should want to join me in the quest to find the story of my ancestors please contact me with details, of how you fit into my Family Tree, and I will give you access to do this. Anyone else can freely view most material on people who are no longer living and contribute to the more general stories. You can comment on anything on this web site without logging in.

The First Aldermen on Northamptonshire County Council

 The Northampton Mercury of 2nd February 1889 reported on the first ever meeting of Northamptonshire County Council, when seventeen Aldermen were elected by the elected members. The paper reported on the qualities of each Alderman, it appears to have had a distinctly Liberal bias but the Council had a Conservative majority.. Samuel Dunkley, my Great Grandfather was a Liberal and the report on him was very favourable.
