Here's a whole assortment of small updates that I had forgotten to tell you about, and other things rescued from their perpetual draft state and published (better to share them as is than wait until they are a perfect and complete record!). In historical order:

For those of you interested in early Wing, there's a new page with some extracts from the 16th-century churchwardens accounts that name residents. There's also some new pages about the history of All Saints Church (previously published elsewhere online). I've illustrated these with several photos taken on my trip to Wing in September 2013.

The marriages for 1838 and 1839 have been added.
An extract from the 1848 Topographical Dictionary of England has been added to the Gazetteers page, along with Wing's entry from the 1813 Magna Britannia.

I found the service record for Charles CARTER in the WO363 series and he's been added to the 19th century servicemen list and the Wesleyan Methodist pages. He also had a monobrow but I don't exactly have a page for that.....

New photos have been added to existing pages, such as the millstones that pave the lych-gate which can now been seen on the Milling page.

Sidney CUTLER has been added to the 20th century servicemen page as he joined the Territorials in 1928 (he served in WW1 too but I haven't updated that page for my most recent finds yet).

There's a new section in Explorations - leisure! This currently features some footballers who you may have seen earlier on this blog.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone, and good luck on your ancestor hunt this year.

I've added a new VALLENTINE memorial inscription to the website. There'll be more to come on the Vallentines shortly.

Update: very shortly in fact, I've also added the last remaining Vallentine gravestone to the website.
