Help! Sealey Mogg.
published by PJPhillips75 on Thu, 02/08/2018 - 14:40

Can anybody resolve a long standing puzzle for me perhaps in the light of new records becoming available for research. Why, oh why did the Moggs of Lympsham area call themselves Sealey-Mogg?? I'm related to them through the Salters of East Brent. Why would the Moggs introduce the Sealey element and flip flop between the two depending on the record being viewed? From what I can see they have no direct connection to the Sealeys of the area, whom I'm also related too.

Any ideas please?

Oldmixon Aircraft Factory
published by John Harding on Fri, 20/07/2018 - 1:18

I've been putting together a file about my mother's time at the Oldmixon Aircraft factory during WW2 - I have photos of her and the 'bulkhead team' who were responsible for elecrical wiring of the Beaufighters. I've been unable to upload them to this site - perhaps because of my hopeless computer skills! - but would be happy for anyone similarly interested to contact me by email and I'll forward the photos. My mum was Nora Rouch of Uphill - it's the other people in the photos I'd like to identify. And I'm also wondering if there are other photos people may have of the Oldmixon facility and of the people who worked there...

Moorland Road, Weston-super-Mare
published by Pat Hase on Fri, 06/07/2018 - 23:22

I have received this from member John Harding email address but at the moment the web site is not accepting the photographs

Does anyone remember The Moorland Pedlar - 87 Moorland Road (Wools, Art, Needlework and Library!) - I used to have a photograph of their marvellous sign that hung outside the business - lost of course - they were a few doors up from where my grandfather traded at No35 - John Harding Outfitter - photo available!

The firms to which he is referring were operating in about 1949.  Moorland Road has changed so much over the years that I'm sure the John (who lives in Australia) would be interested in any information you can supply, either to him or added as a comment to this query.

Can anybody advise me the best place to look for Burnham and Highbridge phone/Street directories 1940s/1950s and 1960s please. A number of years ago I can remember finding my grandparents old address and phone number but for the life of me I can't remember where. Thanks.
