- If it comes to mud pies at forty yards, Drum Major. I'll be your
second. Talbot had connections with County Ofally, Ireland, where the
little village of Birr was situated. Among some of his earliest
immigrants came the Hobbses of County Ofally, and they settled north of
London, Ontario, changed the name of the hamlet of Hughesville, to
Birr. Check the graveyard - there are over thirty Hobbs graves there.
These Hobbses came to Ireland in the 17th century from the Gloucester
and Wiltshire region of England - same seedbed as my ancestors.
James Hobbs owned half the county.
Richard Hobbs, of Bleak House, Middlesex County, Ontario was a

I guess I'd better carry me blackthorn with me next time I go to one
of these re-enacting dos, eh?
This ere `obbs character is a right bloodthirsty Wurzel, I always
thought `e were a Welshman.
I reckon `e be Wurzel and Welsh, same as me.
So, Scrumpy's on me, next time we meet Mr. Hobbs.

- To any of you who were expecting to see Gary and I (Five Rivers
Chapmanry) at Faire at the Forks in Chatham this weekend, I'm going to have
to disappoint you. Gary has severely injured his back today, to the point
the poor man can barely walk. We're going up to the hospital this evening,
hopefully, to have it looked it.
Having said that, with me so arthritic, and now with Gary down for the
count, it is going to be impossible for us to pack the 2000 pounds of
equipment for our encampment, let alone think about unloading, setting up,
working all weekend, and then packing up just to bring it all home and
unload and unpack. Not going to happen.
So, apologies all. I'm hoping this thing isn't severe, or chronic.
And my double apologies for taking up band-width with personal items.
