Would anyone like to take up my full place at the
Secret Lives Conference for £100 ?
This is 2 nights full board in the Jury's Inn in
Hinckley Leics; Fri31Aug-Sun2Sep
with an excellent programme of lectures
Sponsored by the SOG and the GOONS amongst others
I was really keen to attend this interesting event, but very unfortunately
my hip replacement operation was delayed until 3 weeks ago
and I have had a few medical setbacks and will not be strong enough to attend.
It seems that the organisers were obliged to
commit the numbers to the hotel a few weeks ago
and are thus not in a position to give any refund at all.
Hence I am only too glad if someone could use my conference place
for a price that is less than 1/3 of the £320 I paid for it.
If interested, please Email or phone me asap

Does any subscriber know what was involved in getting a grant of
representation before 1858? I realise that the procedure of the various
courts may have differed. Did the executor, or applicant for letters of
administration, have to attend personally at the registry, or could his
proctor submit his application?
Unfortunately, John Hanson's link for marriage locator would not work for
me, but http://www.marriage-locator.co.uk/ did.

I'd be surprised if there was a "Middlesex County Register Office" in
1878 - is this information from an index or from an actual certificate?
As far as I know, there has never been a registration district called
simply "Middlesex". The idea of local government only dates from 1889,
and after then the Middlesex County Council met at Middlesex Guildhall
in Westminster, opposite the Houses of Parliament - now the home of the
Supreme Court - though part of the county administration was conducted
from Brentford. The register office there was known as Brentford
Register Office, and covered a limited area - why not search on FreeBMD
for the name of the registration district, and then use a contemporary
street directory to find the address of the registrar's office?

Until recently there was a pub called "British Prince" between Hammersmith and Shepherds Bush. In the 1850s/60s it was on a road called New Rd but is now known as Goldhawk Rd:-
Does anyone know;
1) when the building was built? the upper windows look Georgian but the rest Victorian so I would guess it is early Victorian with a later ground floor extension to the front?
2) was it just a beer house or did it also offer food/accomodation?
3) are there any books/articles covering the history of that area in the 1850s/60s? It is more Shepherds Bush than Hammersmith but used to be listed in Hammersmith. It was presumably about the time West London transitioned from farming to residential so would it have been one big construction site or is my geography/history slightly awry? What would it have been like at that time?
