Howard, Joh and list
A bit of trivia on "Thirza". I was sworn in as a Queensland Australia
Police Officer on the 22 April 1971 with the Registered Number 8189 (later
changed and renumbered by a new Police Commissioner to 1354). On the 14
April 1991 a women named Thirza STAFFORD (married name) was sworn in with
the Registered Number 1929. It was such an event in our local area that it
appeared (with a photograph) in the local newspaper. I doubt if a
coincidence like it had occurred before or since; STAFFORD twenty years
apart with the same Registered Number.

In my wife's family is a Thirza EVANS who was born in 1842 in Devon. We
have a sampler she made in 1850 with her name on it. I have also
located her in the church records and it is the same spelling.
