#2790 A quick question !

Post by Gnatalee » Sat Jun 09, 2018 4:54 pm

Hello everyone

I am just having a clear out of items that I have kept for far too long (bit of a hoarder :-() and have come across a "silver coloured" cup with a bakelite base and It has inscribed upon it:

H.P.C.L
2ND DIV
1938
W.H.JONES


I know who the person is but am wondering what H.P.C.L stands for - High Peak ******* League? Is it Central, Cricket, or something else?


Thanks in advance !

Gnats :P

Hi Gnats,
Can’t really say for sure but .....
a quick search on “find my past” newspapers gives 66 articles relating to ‘High Peak Cricket League’ , so that does seems likely.
Will keep having a dig about and see if anything else turns up 😀
Cheers for now,
Gail

Thanks Gail

I did wonder about it being cricket because I knew he did play cricket but wasn't aware of a league, or of who he actually played for. Oooh, the questions I should have asked lol !!

Quick question no. 2 !

On the 1851 census I have a relative living at Old Bridge, Whaley Bridge. Now, is Old Bridge the bridge by the White Hart? If so, could we be talking about any of the cottages either side of the road and bridge?

Gnats :crazy:
