December 2006 -

Work has finally resumed after several years of inactivity. Some Wincham deeds have come up on e-bay, which I have acquired. Also a miniture of Thomas Legh of Adlington and Winsham (sic) bought at an auction in Cheshire.

EV Townshend's activities as Lt Col of the Ceshire Yeomanry are interesting, if not entirely glorious; he appears to have led one of the cavalry charges at the Peterloo massacre.

Cheshire Record office's archives catalogue, now searchable online, is thowing up some material which could be interesting, including LP Townshend's marriage settlement.
