    From Pat - notes made after visiting Minster Church

    From Pat - old broken Font on display in Minster Church that was in use when our transported William would have been christened.

    Minster Square 1955 - the houses in view are located very near to the plot owned by Lewis Wellard in 1842. Possibly his house?

    A print of Minster as it was in 1813, further south down High St, from Lewis Wellard's.
