From Mary Fell


Charles William Burkill's Schoolbook

This handwriting was by Charles William Burkill (born December 22nd 1844) which was written in 1860.
Mary Fell’s father found it dropped behind some old cupboards ... and very fortunately saved it for posterity!  Note the “th” after the dates, rather than 22nd, or 21st!
