Why were they all these "Littlechildren" christened "Royston" before, presumably, later changing their names?

Better than having a handle like 'Dressmaker' (Jewish, plainly) or 'Clapham'.

By the way, business took me to Merthyr again yesterday. Brilliant. I watched the shimmer in the air from the heating-duct outlet of the Hoover factory, and caught the mass indifference of the populace to the Valley Burger Bar offering double fries with a Jumbo bacon-buttie. Yes, I'm paid for all this, too.

And I guess that your translation of 'Tafarnaubach' as 'little inns' must wing its way back to toga-toting times and 'tabernae'.

Cheers,

Graham, see.

Hiya butt!

Indeed, you're right about the etymology of "tafarnau", pronounced (I'm sure you know) not as "taff-arn-awe", but "tav-arn-eye" - not a million miles from "tabernae". There's a large Latin legacy still evident in Welsh nouns, such as:

cadair - cathedra - chair
ffenestr - fenestra - window
llyfr - liber - book
cwrw - cervisia - beer
eglwys - ecclesia - church
braich - bracchium - arm
gwydr - vitrum - glass
cleddyf - gladius - sword
preseb - praesepe - manger
cwer - cera - wax
carchar - carcer - prison
cadwyn - catena - chain


One of my favourites is:

ysgwydd - scutum - shoulder

This is an echo of the Dark Ages, and appears at least as far back as poetry dated to the 7th Century. The Old Welsh "ysgwyd" [shield] came from the Latin "scutum" but, by association with the body part over which the shield was slung, became over time simply the word for "shoulder"!

(Sorry, Chris, for going O/T there!!!)

Just to extend a little on an excellent post by Chris

John George Litlechild married Mary Ann Palmer 5 Oct 1833 Reed Herts

From the 1841 & 51 census they also had 3 other children

Elizabeth Palmer Littlechild born 1834 Reed Herts
Kezia Littlechild born Barkway Herts
Daniel Littlechild born 1841 Royston Herts

It seems Daniel travelled around a lot, 1861 hes inn Warwickshire, 1870 he marries Louisa Jane Cooper in Northampton, 1871 hes in Lancashire.
On the 1881 Census

Daniel Littlechild ,Head, born 1841 Royston, City Police Constable
Louisa Littlechild, Wife, bon 1850 London Middx
Alice Rallings, Lodger, born 1857, london Middz, servant formerly
John G Rallings, Lodger, born 1861, Edmonton Middx, Coach painter
Mary A Pritlove, Lodger, born 1845, Bristol, Boot machinist

Living at 5 Clifton St, Shoreditch

Also 1881 Census

Rebekah Rallings, Head, wid, age 38 born Royston, formerly wheelwrights wife
Clara Rallings, Dau, age 7 born Royston, Scholar
Alfred Rallings, son, age 6, born Royston, Scholar
Thomas C Rallings, son, age 1 , born Royston
John Littlechild, Boarder, age 73, born Duxford, Camb. Formerly Blackmith
Ernest Baker, Lodger, age 16, born Chishill. Cabinet makers apprentice

Living London Rd, Royston, Herts.

John Litttlechild snrs daughter Elizabeth Palmer Littlechild married John Stemmers Rallings in the Jun Q 1859 Islington, while I can find no direct link with the Rallings living with the Littlechilds from Elizabeths and the Royston connection I would think that both families if not related knew each other
well.

In 1901 Daniel Littlechild , age 60, born Royston, City of london Polica Pensioner, living Wood Green
I had not previously known that Littlechild had an elder brother in the police force and I would think it was Daniel who followed John into the force and not the other way round.
I would very much like to know what Daniel status was in 1891 ,I dont have access to the details,was he promoted, retired or just still a constable living in the shadow of his youger brother, if someone could take a look it would be much appreciated.

Hope this is of interest to someone
