There has been much chatter in the genealogy world this week about the British Postal Service Appointment Books just released on Ancestry.
I have done some searches for the main names in my family tree. There are plenty of Dawson’s in the area of Yorkshire that I am interested in – so I need to look at those when I have more time.
However, there were only fifteen Espley’s plus three Aspley’s and two Epsley’s. So I have captured all this information in a new table in my spreadsheet.
The Espley’s are:-
Wm. – 1894, 1895 and 1896 in Wellington, Shropshire
Jessie – 1910 in Wellington, Shropshire working on the telephones
Wm. – 1913 in Chester
William E – 1922 – the location isn’t recorded. Employed as certified wireless watcher.
Victor G – 1933 in Bletchley as Postman manager.
Audrey M – 1935 at the Central Telegraph Office
Victor G – 1935 in Luton and 1937 in Bedford
John S – 1940, location not recorded
Frederick J W – 1947 in Stoke on Trent as a postman
Leslie – 1949 in Southampton
James F – 1953 in Stoke on Trent as a postman
If anyone can identify these particular Espley’s I would love to hear from you.
