Thomas Major of Hungerford 1771 - 1843, His Will

I have transcribed this will. For ease of referring to original, line breaks are as on the original and page breaks from the original are marked by blank lines. Round brackets are as in the original but square brackets are round items I could not read. Thomas was the eldest son of Thomas Major of Stockbridge.

Earliest mentions of Greens in Kingsthorpe

In 1883 the vicar of Kingsthorpe created a list of old documents, and excerpts from some, in a book called:
Kingsthorpiana or Researches in a Church Chest
I have extracted all mentions of the name Green from this book. I have also included early Greens from the Kingsthorpe parish register.

If anyone has any more information on early Greens in Kingsthorpe I would be very grateful if they could contact me.

Sanitary Engineering in Victorian Times written c1870

Cisterns and Economy of Water - Ventilation of Pipes

We now proceed to give the detail of various inventions for storing and also for economising the supply of water. In the last century cisterns were almost invariably made of lead, in some cases cast solid of sufficient thickness to be fixed without external casing; the outside was often decorated with panelling in designs, and sometimes with coats of arms. The usual mode, however, was to provide a strong wooden cistern, which was subsequently lined with lead soldered together at the angles, either cast in sheets or rolled in a mill, described in the first case as "cast" and in the latter as "milled" lead; and this latter system is still extensively in use.

Visitors to us aren't always looking for expensive antiques. They are mainly looking for yesteryear collectables and older solid furniture to replace laminated chipboard. Dealers respond to customers demands; Victorian and Edwardian pine chests and furniture are bought, restored and sold. If an item is sold we start looking for similar items and a trend is set.
