Uncle Joe's Mint Balls (805 words)
He was born on July 27th in 1873 and like so many Wiganers of that era, grew up in poverty; one of seven brothers and sisters, with their father working as a shotfirer in the local colliery.
The sweets started off as a sideline on the corner of his fruit stall, but Ellen must have shown a natural aptitude, because within a few years they were to become William’s exclusive trade.
William sold his market stalls in Bolton and St. Helens and all the sweets were destined to be eaten by Wiganers.
Stall-Plates of the Knights of the Garter (12928 words)
The number of knights was originally 26, and accordingly the stalls were numbered from 1 (Sovereign's stall) to 26, with the odd numbers on the south side and the even numbers on the north side (that is the system used in earlier reference works such as Ashmole and Joseph Pote, 1749).
Transferred from this stall to Stall 2, (N.i) in 1377 on the accession of Richard II.
1661 (457) Frederick William, Margrave of Brandenburg, Duke of Prussia.
