Copies of documents dated 1842 to 1874 have been sent to the Ambler by the owner of 35 Church Street, Mrs. Mary Hickman, who lives in Jersey.
She had the house in Church Street renovated in 1996/7 and the builder found papers stuck to the walls of the chimney breast. She believes somebody will be interested so sent photocopies to us.
The documents appear to be connected to the export of coal, one of them sent from a Mr. Denham of Broomhill Colliery office to a Mr. Bowey, giving instructions dealing with coal and boats. (See pic).
Another is printed in German and looks like an order.
Mrs. Hickman wonders if they are of historical significance.
