  1. Hi, I remember Fred & Nel Bennel. They lived in the first house on the left in Tilstone Ave. Fred had a gammy leg. He was always a bit grumpy. I liked him> He took David and I to football matches. I was friends with David but we fell out in later years over a silly matter. I regret it. If you see David pass on my regards. Hope he is doing well.

    Dear Eton Wick Local History Group

    Thames Valley Ancient Egypt Society
    I am writing on behalf of the Thames Valley Ancient Egypt Society, which covers the three counties of Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire although meetings take place in Reading.
    I would be very grateful if you could bring this Society to the attention of your members, some of whom may be interested in attending various of the lectures about Ancient Egypt, but may be unaware that the Society exists.

    I would also like to offer your Society the possibility of a lecture on Ancient Egypt; we have a team of lecturers on the Committee who would be more than happy to visit your Society to talk to members on a requested topic.
    Regards, Francesca Jones (TVAES Committee)

  3. I notice your treasurer is P Hodgson. I wonder if this is Paul, who was one of my classmates at Eton Wick School.
    On another subject, I attended Slough Grammar School until 1970, and they have a web site, the Old Paludians, that includes some pictures and names of the whole school. Do you have anything similar for Eton Wick School?

  4. The Elizabethan Star Chamber Project, hosted by AALT at the University of Houston, is putting county names on cases in TNA STAC 5 (Records of the Court of Star Chamber in the reign of Elizabeth). 

    There are now sufficient cases identified to make the web site interesting to local historians, and I would be grateful if you would inform your membership of our existence. Secretary hand is not for everybody, but the documents are all in English. Most of the cases are completely unknown to historians, and this is because of their chaotic storage at TNA (cases may have up to twenty different references) and the previous inadequacy of finding aids. All the cases are social history of one locality or another.

  5. Thames Valley ancient Egypt Society (TVAES) was founded in 1994 to meet the increasing local demands of a growing interest in Ancient Egypt. The aims of the Society are to promote the study and public dissemination of the culture, religion, art, language, life and death in ancient Egypt.

    As part of this remit the TVAES committee members are offering to present one off lectures on various aspects of Ancient Egypt to all the Historical Society groups in the Berks, Bucks and Oxfordshire area.

    If you would be interested in making one of our lectures part of your ongoing programme for either this year or next year please contact me, Anne Roberts, on or telephone 07840716262.
