Articles from 1867

The Marlborough Times, 17th August 1867:
Wesleyan Sunday School Anniversary
The services of the above school were held on Sunday the 11th inst., in a spacious barn, which was kindly lent and fitted up for the occasion by Mr
PRICE, when two efficient sermons were preached by an old friend Mr J.S. GRIFFIN, of Lambourne, which were listened to with very much pleasure and profit. In the afternoon of the same day the children recited a variety of interesting pieces, after which an examination on Scripture history and geography was conducted with great spirit and effect by Mr GRIFFIN, which proved to the satisfaction of the people that the school children were not only prepared for the exercise of an anniversary, but that they had acquired through the indefatigable labours of the teachers a good stock of scriptural knowledge, the whole reflecting great credit on both teachers and children. The congregations were overflowing, the friends flocked in from the neighbouring villages around, vastly beyond the most sanguine expectations of the friends, who showed their love for sabbath school operations by liberal collections which were much in advance of any previous year. At the close of the service a unanimous vote of thanks was given to Mr PRICE for the use of the barn without which such a successful anniversary could not have been held.


The Marlborough Times, 22nd August 1867:
Deaths: On the 19th inst., at the Manor House, Milton, Pewsey, Wilts, MARY ANN, relict of the late JOHN SOMERSET Esq., beloved and deeply regretted.


The Marlborough Times, 2nd November 1867:
Everley Petty Sessions
Mr ENOS PRICE, of Milton, was summoned for refusing to pay the sum of 12s 6d wages to a boy in his employ named DAVID WILLIS, a yearly servant, who had been ill and unable to work for 13 days whilst in Mr PRICE'S service. There was a verbal agreement between Mr PRICE and the boy when the latter entered into his service, and Mr PRICE admitted that there was nothing said about the stoppage of wages during illness, and under these circumstances an order was made for the payment of the money and costs.
