Hi Listers ,
Following a visit to Congleton library :
1. I ordered the plague book "The Year of Wonders" as recommended by the
2. After pre-booking a reader for two hours - I found the following in a
tape " Parish Registers of Astbury & Congleton"
John MELLER - John son of Tom Meller and Eliz
born 8/August/1762 of Smallwood
Cornelius ROBERTS - Cornelius son of William Roberts & Ann
Richard MALKIN - Richard, son of Thomas & Hannah Malkin of Astley Marsh
These extracts were transcribed in spite of poor eyesight and poor
originals - so please
accept them on this basis.( I should have taken a magnifying glass).
3. I then went onto one of the library's PCs to check my Emails.
In all, a very satisfying visit.
If you are going to use these facilities, do ring the library to arrange
your visit or you may be disappointed.
