Weathervane Wednesday ~ Royal Courts of Justice

 post another in a series of weather vane photographs every Wednesday.  This started with images of weathervanes from the Londonderry, New Hampshire area, but now I've found interesting weather vanes all across New England and across the globe.  Sometimes my weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are interesting.  Often my readers tip me off to some very unique or unusual weathervanes, too!  If you know a great weather vane near you, let me know if you'd like to have it featured on this blog.

Today's weather vane was photographed in London, England.

Do you know the location of weathervane post #364?  Scroll down to find the answer.

The Royal Courts of Justice is an impressive Gothic style building on the Strand in London, England.  It dates from the 1870s and is known as "The Law Courts".  It is near the Temple Bar and the four Inns of Court.  The Courts are open to the public, except in family court cases such as adoptions, which are closed to the public.  There are tours several times a day, too.

This weathervane has no cardinal points, and it is a fancy, filigree square banner.  There are many other fancy finials and spires atop this building, but only one weathervane.

Tombstone Tuesday ~ Major William Brown of Dunbarton, New Hampshire

These tombstones were photographed at the East Dunbarton Cemetery on Robert Rogers Road in Dunbarton, New Hampshire.

AE 85 y'rs 2 mo's
& 9 d's.

Wife of 
died Aug. 15, 1834,
aged 70 years
10 mo. & 6 days.

N. Farley, Concord

The stone carver was Nathan Farley of Concord, New Hampshire

From History of the Town of Dunbarton, by Caleb Stark, 1860, page 252

“ Major William Brown, from Beverly, Mass., settled in the south-eastern part of the town.  He was an influential and respectable man, often elected to town offices, and major of the ninth regiment (New Hampshire militia).  When he came to this place he possessed but little property, but by his active labor as a good blacksmith, he purchased land, piece by piece, until he had obtained a considerable farm.  He was, in his younger days, a hard worker.  He left a good estate.  He was born January 24, 1764, and died April 2, 1849, age 85.  His grandson, Paltiah, has frequently been chosen moderator and selectman.  He was also elected Register of Deeds for Merrimack County, and now resides in Concord…
       Anecdote of Major Brown.  When he commanded the militia company in this town, while with them, on parade, near the town-house, he observed a large black snake with head erect, steering across the common, toward the house. Without a moment’s hesitation he gave chase, and before the enemy could get cover, killed him with his sword.”

William Brown was married to a Judith who died 1834, and a Sarah Burnham who died in 1853. 

William, born 1790, died 1849, aged 69
Judith, born 1794

This honor roll is located in Building 10 on the campus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  This two story space is known as “Lobby 10” or “Memorial Lobby”.  These travertine marble walls are covered with the names of MIT alumni who have died during WW1, WWII, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. There is a 24 hour silent vigil in this lobby every year by MIT’s ROTC community.  The lettering on the walls was re-gilded in 2012.  Memorial Lobby is on the famous “infinite corridor” parallel to the Charles River and Memorial Drive.  The Great Court, where celebrations such as graduation take place, is outside the glass wall of Memorial Lobby on the south side.

Surname Saturday ~ WILDER of Hingham, Massachusetts


Thomas Wilder, my 10th great grandfather, never came to the New World, but his widow, Martha, came with her children on board the ship Confidence in 1638.  She settled in Hingham, where “Widow Wilder” was granted a house lot. 

According to an article in the NEHGS Register, Volume 31 [1887], pages 410 – 411, “A Page from the History of the Wilders” by Rev. Moses H. Wilder, he described how he went to England and researched Thomas Wilder, Esquire, who died there in 1634.  His widow was named Martha, and she had an estate at Shiplake, Oxfordshire until she came to America.  This was part of a book Rev. Wilder wrote Book of the Wilders: a further contribution to the history of the Wilders, from 1497, in England, to the immigration of Martha, a widow, and her family to Massachusetts Bay, in 1638, NEHGS 1985 (reprint of the original from 1878).  In this book Rev. Wilder traces the family back to 1497 to a Nicholas Wilder.

No one knows Martha's maiden name, nor her origins. 

Martha’s two sons, Thomas and Edward, preceded her to New England. She arrived with her two daughters, Elizabeth and Mary, my 9th great grandmother. Mary (about 1623 – 1658) who married Joseph Underwood.

My WILDER genealogy:

Generation 1: Thomas Wilder, son of John Wilder and Alice Keats, born 1579 and died 23 October 1634 at Shiplake, Oxfordshire, England; married about 1618 in England to Martha Unknown.  Four children.

Generation 2:  Mary Wilder, born about 1623 in Shiplake, died 13 February 1658 in Watertown, Massachusetts; married about 1644 in Hingham, Massachusetts to Joseph Underwood.  He was born about 1614 in England and died 16 February 1676/77 in Watertown.  Joseph married second to Mary Howe.

Generation 3: Joseph Underwood m. Elizabeth Bond
Generation 4: Sarah Underwood m. John Bullen
Generation 5: Grace Bullen m. Ebenezer Healy
Generation 6: Comfort Haley m. Abigail Allen
Generation 7: Comfort Haley m. Rebecca Crosby
Generation 8:  Joseph Edwin Healy m. Matilda Weston
Generation 9:  Mary Etta Healey m. Peter Hoozerzeil
Generation 10:  Florence Etta Hoogerzeil m. Arthur Treadwell Hitchings
Generation 11:  Gertrude Matilda Hitchings m. Stanley Elmer Allen (my grandparents)

Weathervane Wednesday ~ A Train Station with Two Weathervanes

I post another in a series of weather vane photographs every Wednesday.  This started with images of weathervanes from the Londonderry, New Hampshire area, but now I've found interesting weather vanes all across New England and across the globe.  Sometimes my weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are interesting.  Often my readers tip me off to some very unique or unusual weathervanes, too!  If you know a great weather vane near you, let me know if you'd like to have it featured on this blog.

Today's weather vane was photographed in the United Kingdom.

Do you know the location of weathervane post #363?  Scroll down to find the answer.

This is the Cannon Street Station in London, along the banks of the Thames River.  We were on the other side of the Thames waiting to see a play at Shakespeare’s Globe Theater when we spied these two weathervanes.  Both banner style weathervanes have the lettering “SER 1866” which is a reference to the South Eastern Railway (SER) and the year the station was opened on 1 September 1866.

According to Wikipedia, Cannon Street station is a terminal by the Cannon Street Railway Bridge.  This bridge is located between London Bridge and the Southward Bridge.  When the station was constructed in 1866 it cost  £4 million.  The two towers are described as “Christopher Wren style”.  Both weathervanes, one on each tower, are identical. There is an Underground station here as well as bus services.

Deerfield, New Hampshire - Military Honor Roll

The Philbrick-James Library, Deerfield, New Hampshire

Last month I visited the Deerfield library to research my Batchelder ancestors who lived here in the late 1700s and early 1800s.  I noticed all the bronze plaques with the honor rolls of Deerfield citizens who served in various wars by the front door of the library.  There were quite a few Batchelder names on these rolls, in the American Revolution and Civil Wars, and some more in later years.  My 6th and 5th grandfathers, both named Nathaniel Batchelder, served in the Revolution and are named here.  Nathaniel Batchelder (1732 - 1778) died at Ticonderoga, and his son Stephen Batchelder (1757 - 1777), my 6th great uncle, died at the Battle of Bennington. My 5th great grandfather, Nathaniel Batchelder, Jr. ( 1763 - 1809), served when he was only 14 years old in Cilley's regiment.  His wife, Mary, received a widow's pension, and her lawyer Franklin Pierce signed the paperwork. He went on to become the 14th president of the United States.

In Memory of
Lieut. Nathaniel Meloon
Born – Exeter, N.H. – April 18, 1733
Died- Deerfield, N. H. July 1803
One of the original signers
Of petition dated June 28, 1765
