Clarke's butcher's shop was here from 1877 until 1998. The front wall (which is NOT as it was in 1877!) is listed so it is all that remains. Now a Costa Coffee - a sign of the times in our High Streets.
From c1923 to 1998 was Clarke Brothers. Also had premises at 67, High Street (now demolished), from c1946 to 1956, and 72, High Street from c1945 to 1993.

Autographs of Arthur & Dorothea Ponsonby 27th. August 1898.
Arthur worked in the British Legation in Copenhagen from 1898 to 1900. He hated it because he did not have enough work to do! Alan Johnstone (who's autograph is also there) was secretary of the Copenhagen Legation. In "Arthur Ponsonby, The Politics of Life" by Raymond A. Jones, Arthur reports, "The Johnstones are the regular Anglo-American diplomatic ménage, lots of money and very diplomatic." (Alan Johnstone married the American heiress, Antoinette Pinchot, in 1892). In 1905 he became Ambassador to Denmark.

Dulce Dickinson was a great genealogist. In the late '40s she gave a handwritten book of the history of the Dickinson / Lean families to her great nephew, Michael Dickinson Lean. This was an unbelievable help to me in my research and, although some of it was wrong, it was incredible how much correct information she got in the days before the internet etc. I, obviously, never met her but she has a special place in my heart!

Married late in life and, some years after her death (we didn't know) our nephew wrote to her last known address and got a reply from her widower! We visited him and had a very pleasant afternoon, getting lots of first hand information. Sadly, not too many years afterwards, our Christmas card received a reply from his solicitors notifying us of his death. Why, oh why, didn't I take a photo of John Lockett when we met him?
