Another item of news I neglected to mention was that we have discovered one of our ancestors, William Wellard, was a jailer in Westgate Jail. He was mentioned in a book by E.P.Thompson. There was this bloke, the Jeffrey Archer of his day, who got nicked, much like his modern-day equivalent, but on release praised his jailer, William Wellard, and said that he would “commend him to all his friends.” Fame:)


Nice day. This evening we went over to my mum and dad’s place and bought them a kebab. Chris and I managed to get a swift pint in too, from “The Banker’s Draft”. Perfect.
Good night 🙂
