My Childhood in West Worlington
I was born in 1931 and lived in Town Cottage with my brothers Francis and Dennis. My earliest memory is of a five year old, being sent to sit in the garden while my brother Denis was born. Denis was always known as Toby. Toby was the name of the donkey up the road, I liked the donkey and the name stuck.
Sarah Down – a murder in East Worlington
Nothing much seems to have happened in 1823: no major disasters; no large-scale wars started or ended; no one particularly notable seems to have been born or died. Indeed 1823 seems to have gone out of its way to be an inconspicuous year for world changing events.
