In a house where I used to live, I found a number of books in a cupboard including a Book of Common Prayer that had been printed in 1811 - yes, 1811... over 200 years ago. Yesterday, I took a book of the shelf next to it and it dropped on the floor. I had not looked at the book in many years and flicked through. There are engravings illustrating the sections on baptism, marriage and burial, which caught my attention. Written on the back of the burial illustration are the following: Alice Jackson, died September 7th 1827 Joseph Jackson, died August 26th 1845 Mary Dean, died 21st January 1829 These are contemporary entries and all have their ages. A bit of detective work has found them in Liverpool and Cheshire. I would love this Book of Common Prayer to go to whoever is related to these people rather than it sit on my bookcase.
