    PC ban -

    It's completely bonkers. If I see say an advert of a woman unable to park it doesn't upset me in the slightest just as seeing a woman hoovering when the man just sits there. 'Hurtful gender stereotyping' my a*se. People who dream these new rulings up or are easily offended need to get a grip on life and stop being so blummin pathetic.

    Great posts Stallard & Evils I'm not sure I could live where you do with that heat and all those pesky critters though Stallard. I think your Magpie has come to ours Evils as ones been making a right racket on our roof all day in the rain, plus my back yard had hundreds of blummin' slugs of all shapes, sizes and ages all over the flags last night too cos it had rained. Where the bloody hell do they hide all day and why our yard?....we haven't even got any plants or greenery for goodness sake. Can't put slug pellets down cos of the dog aargh....
  3. I'm sorry as I'm not being much use as everything else I'm finding just says Victoria Square too for James Snr and Jnr but I;m having so much fun looking . One thing has just occurred to me though and that is that Victoria Square outside the Mulberry Tree Pub used to be the place that all the large Horse Drawn 'busses' used to go to and from . It was a very busy area back in the day for that form of transport and people were taken back and too to Warrington town centre and other villages. Back in those days most forms of transport involved horses and James Snr & Jnr both clearly worked in the horse business as Groomers, Coachmen etc. according to their records some of which I've already posted above. The Mullbery Tree Pub also had a large stable block at the back (which are still there today and I think there were more right next to it too down the back alley at the rear ( so I'm wondering if the 'CAB' Proprietor business was more to do with Horse Cabs. It would make sense. Perhaps they started up their own Horse 'Cab' business but ran it from premises/stables at the back of the Mulberry Tree or the buildings behind in the alley way hence it just saying 'Victoria Square as it would have no street address. Maybe they ran Hansom Cabs (horse drawn smaller carriages which would carry a couple of people along with the 'driver') as perhaps they noticed a niche in the market and went into competition with the bigger Horse Busses which were often over full and presumably only covered set routes but theirs being smaller carrying only a few people could be more adaptable to take people where they wanted to go ie direct to their own home or to the next pub lol. I'll stop rambling on until I hear back from you on here Victoria as I may be telling you things you already know anyway....oops if I am
  4. Silly me....having researched their family tree further I now find that the James Endersby in the above records was the FATHER of James E Endersby and the latter was listed as a TAXI PROPRIETOR at Victoria Square, Stockton Heath. Always bugs me when parents pass down the same name to their children ha ha. Still not much use though only having the address 'Victoria Square' but I;m sure we will figure it out eventually.
  5. James's Probate record from when he sadly dies in 1912 aged 55 only shows him as residing in Stockton Heath at Victoria Square and being a Cab Proprietor.
  6. In 1901James and his family are listed at being at Daresbuty Hall where he was a Coachman (a 'worker' then not an 'employer' as he's shown on the 1911 Census)
  7. Hiya again, I just had a look on the 1911 Census and found him aged 54 listed as 'Cab Proprietor' and an 'Employer' but all it says is that he and his family lived at Victoria Square (which is/was where the Mullberry Tree Pub is but back then could have included premises around the square itself I guess).
  8. Hiya Victoria and welcome to the forum It's never occurred to me that there were taxis in the 1900's. Can you be more precise with a year range and do you know which side of the Mulberry Tree pub his taxi firm was on? Any more info would help I'll have a look through all my old Stockton Heath photos on my other hard drive when I have a better idea of the year(s) I need to look at and maybe there could be some record of his business in the old trade directories. Have you already tried those?
  9. The 'block a persons posts so I don't see them cos they stalk me and/or drive me mad' button can easily be turned on and off whenever the 'blocker' feels they have had enough alcohol or valium to steady their nerves PJ. I tend to go for alcohol lol I don't know if Obs has turned you on or turned you off again of course as that's between you two but you really do need to sort your relationship out
  10. I don't know any secrets either.... In fact I'm pretty dumb and everything I do know is just what the little fairies tell me who live in my garden, and they get all their info from the elves who live along the canal bank... who get their info from the three legged troll who lives under the swing bridge. I've no idea where he gets his info from though.....
  11. I have a Huawei mobile phone and tablet...both are very good. I'm not too concerned though as I don't know any really good jokes
  12. Hi Boris, good to see you back on here again. I'm afraid there's no point in me writing in as I've never used the footpath as I don't live over that side of town. I wish I did as I'd certainly complain about it's closure. I'm sure there are people on here (members or just guests who read daily) who will be more than willing to object and send in witness statements. Good luck
  13. Going back to topic..... If the figure of £350 million a week on the side of the campaign busses etc was incorrect WHY has it taken 3 years for the bloke to raise a private prosecution against Boris about it. Why didn't he do it at the time? Surely it would have made more sense to question it back then at the campaign stage than now when brexit has already been voted on and we've spent 3 years battling it out with the EU. Seems to me, like already said, it's just game playing to stop Boris standing to becoming the new PM blah blah. A better use of the £200,000 he's raised for the private prosecution would be to give it to the NHS or Aldery Hey / Great Ormond Street Hospitals !!!!
