Has anyone got this family in their Tree?
James Cecil WHITE or Ellen Mary WHERNAM. Ellen Died 24 May 1909 and is
buried at Littleham
I have an article on this family, I can photo copy it and post.
St Agnes Museum recently acquired a WWII Defence Medal awarded to a
local lady from our Parish. In searching for the reason for its award,
we have just been given a photograph of her in an Auxiliary Fire Service
group on its Passing Out ceremony at Lee Mill, taken in 1943.
There are several names written on the back, each sending good wishes
for the future. I assume that each person was going her separate way to
an appointed post.
Does anyone know anything about this establishment, or have a similar
connection? Is there a way of finding where each person went?
I found the following message on your website regarding the Tooze family in Holcombe Rogus, dated 2/8/2002 from Richard Farmer in which he says:
“ I wonder if anyone out there knows anything about the Tooxe family from Holcombe Rogus. Bill Tooze had a son, Frank Tooze who was a Carpenter/Joiner. I think Frank also ran the New Inn pub. Maud and Florence Lucy were Franks children. I think Maud also use to run the New Inn. Florence married a William Farmer. any information relating to the above would be extremely useful.”
Florence and Edith Maud were sisters to William Francis Tooze who was my husbands grandad.
I realise his message was from several years ago but would love if Richard Farmer could get in contact.

Dear List Members,
Are there any transcripts of the Parish in Brixton? The only thing I have seen available are the Bishop’s transcripts that start in 1609 and is fragmented. Though there are events that are after 1609 that I am interested in, the years are missing.

Not Devon, but my g grandfather John Handford HARDY completed his MRCS
qualifications at Guy's Hospital, London, in 1851. He later practised
both medicine and pharmacy in Chewton and Castlemaine, Victoria
Australia. The pharmacy bit had always puzzled me until I checked out
the requirements for MRCS in the Medical Directory 1861. A
qualification in pharmacy was a component of the MRCS course of study.
Seems a strange requirement for a surgeon, but there it is. His
pharmacy seems to have been run by Thomas FELSTEAD, 'Chemist's
Assistant', and I'm not sure what qualifications, if any, he might
I have not found John Handford HARDY enrolled at any university. It is
likely that he served an apprenticeship with a practising doctor
before undertaking the 7 year MRCS qualification.

I hesitate to disagree with Jean for whom I have much respect, but I
believe that university education was not compulsory in the 19th century
for a number of the professions, including chemists and pharmacists. I
did a google search on
chemist qualifications 19th century
and the first hit that came up was a book "Making medicines. A brief
history of pharmacy and pharmaceuticals" that said at page 77 "The
chemists and druggists were constantly criticized by other groups for
their lack of training and qualifications." It went on to say that in
the late Victorian era many doctors dispensed their own prescriptions
and pharmacists probably dispensed less than 10% of the prescriptions
written in England and Wales. "The result was that pharmacists were
were dependent on 'over the counter' trade for much of their
livelihood. The 'chemist' was regarded as a shopkeeper, selling a wide
variety of medicines, toiletries, and various other goods."
From what I read, in those days pharmacist and chemist were not
"reserved" words and could be used by anyone.
