Just to add I really enjoyed Davina's ancestry - particularly James Thomas Bedborough
- Stone Mason, Builder, and former Mayor of Windsor.
I've transcribed quite a bit of the earlier Editions of the Windsor and Eton Express (probably the finest regional newspaper of its day), and Mr. Bedborough , as he is often described, comes across as a great character. And it has given me some new ideas to try at the National Archive
One of own ancestors James Southwood
(another Jas.) was a contempory of his at Windsor, also involved "for many years the foreman of the works at Windsor Castle and the Great Park during the reign of George IV"
He got into financial difficulties and was in debt to Mr.Bedborough among others in 1834, though he bounced back to be Windsor Borough Carpenter. If of interest - you can see the monument to Jas. Thos. Bedborough at the bottom of my webpagehttp://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~dutillieul/ZSouthwood/SouthwoodLinks1.html
And if you want to read more about Mr.Bedborough you can search in my newspaper transcripts here http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~dutillieul/ZOtherPapers/Index.html
along with an estimated 130,000 other Georgians and Victorians.
