Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb

We’re delighted to announce the launch of a new website and online
catalogue search for the Parliamentary Archives:
The website launch is the first phase in a much larger project to
transform the Archives service. The next twelve months will see
additional content and features added to the website including user
registration and document ordering.
We welcome feedback from colleagues and researchers. Please direct your
thoughts, queries and questions to archives(a)parliament.uk

I have just come across a document on FMP that shows my grandfather in
the Navy from 20 July 1917, serving in President II (Stratford) and
President V (Stratford) as AM11(CH) and then actAM1 then act M1 and
finally M1 and demobilised on 14 Jan 19.
Would this have been a full time occupation, or only a reservist
'evenings and weekends' service. He was born 11 April 1886 so presumably
would have been eligible to serve. His occupation is shown as Hotel
manager (in reality it was a large East End pub).
Any thoughts or help gratefully appreciated.

Although Stone crosses were commonly used as boundary markers he dose not link this practice to your examples. Three Crosses is listed as being named so because it was at a junction of 3 roads and Four Crosses being at the intersection of two roads (hence 4 places to cross).
No clear references to Foxes.

WHAT SHOULD YOU POST?
1. Questions about your ancestors. Give as much detail as you can.
2. Interesting history that is relevant to the list.
3. Genealogy and family history conferences, even if they charge for admission.
4. Genealogy societies should feel free to post about their society and their websites.

6. Links to personal blogs that are about genealogy. They can be your blog or another. Even if the blog has ads, that is not a problem.
7. New collections on various genealogy sites that are relevant. We don't want advertisements, but if you find an interesting collection on Ancestry, FamilySearch, Library of Congress, or some other site that has relevance to the list, let people know.
