Dates & Handwriting

leave a comment »






This sheet of paper was stuck onto page 3 of Lavinia’s album. Originally I thought this might have been copied from a Shaw family Bible rumoured to have been in the possession of Mary Shaw some years ago. Looking more closely the sequence of entries and various mistakes in the dates don’t support this. More likely this record was compiled by Lavinia maybe at Mary’s request. Based on 1931 being the most recent date it was probably written in the mid 1930s when Lavinia was 70 or more.

The back of the sheet contains part a pencil written transcription of passages from the King James Bible (by Mary? Ephesians 6:9-10 and 3:16?).
