| Welcome to the parishregister September newsletter. Another month has passed and we're into Autumn, with shorter days, more rain, and it's getting colder and colder..... unless of course you live in OZ or NZ, in which case you're a lucky so and so!!! ......Ok, there's been a few days since I wrote this first bit, and guess what, we're having an Indian summer, it's still 21 degrees and there's been no rain for over a week. As I ran through Victoria Park today there were people sunbathing and having B-B-Qs, oh the unpredictability of English weather! Before we get down to business I have a rather silly question for you: what do you call a sheep covered in plastic? The answer is somewhere in this newsletter, as is a £10 off offer on one of our compendiums!

Watermen & Lightermen
1628 Admiralty Muster of Watermen James transcribed this document from the National Archives in Kew. On the searchable CD-Rom, there are some 2,393 names of Watermen. Information recorded is forename, surname, age in 1628/9, number of voyages made, location and notes (such as trumpeter, gunner, boatswain).
As you may have noticed, the earliest Company record is dated 1692, so this is a wonderful resource for possibly pushing your history further back in time. A bargain at £5.95! If you would like to snap this up then do the honours and click here: I'll have this
1648 Petition for the King
This document, from the House of Lords, records the names of 2,026 watermen from the last year of the reign of Charles I. It was instigated by the Royal Bargemasters, Nowell Warner and Robert Bursey, and written by the clerk to the Company, Thomas Lowe.
The Petition is the vital link between the earlier 1628 Admiralty Muster and the beginnings of the Company's records in 1692.
Also included on the CD are an index to the names, commentary & analysis by James and image samples of the original 350 year old scroll together with a 1673 list of Watermen in the Tower of London. Another bargain at £5.95! If you want this fabulous CD then click here: Yes please
