Death Warrant by order of the Sheriff of Kent, a bookseller and Gormley in Folkestone, Minter in Thanet manuscript, photos ramble, mostly the usual type of stuff.

I have never seen a Kent death warrant before and in terms of significant Kentish documents I think it must be one of the scarcest. The document would have been handed to the executioner and having discharged his task he would have presumably torn it up and thrown it away.


I don’t think I have to be politically correct on this one, as I don’t think there were any female executioners in eighteenth century Kent.


My day off today so off to Folkestone where the children can shop, do what they do on the beach and I can get a view to paint with a pot of Yorkshire tea, comfortable seat and the sun behind me.


Marrin’s bookshop where I bought a few books including a manuscript for publication, the Fanit youf who will type this up, enhance the photos and turn it into a local book which I will publish is. What? Rubbing hands together with enthusiasm, a teenagers lot, oh well.



I decided that the death warrant was a bit expensive and as it wasn’t a Fanit one didn’t buy it, wot about the black seal, ever seen the like?


I wos in search of the Gormley’s as well, who wouldn’t be
