red mail Are you a descendant of the Robarts or Stapley families of Potton, Bedfordshire, UK?
Are you a descendant of the Robarts or Stapley families of Potton, Bedfordshire, UK? If so, would you like to take part in a piece of historical academic research? In December 1909, Louise Marie Robarts (Later Louise Marie Stapley after she married in 1911) took a graded music examination in Bedford. Her teacher was Ethel Grace Diemer of Bedford. The recent discovery of this exam certificate in a Bedford charity shop has inspired a piece of historical research by Dr Ross Purves of UCL Institute of Education. This is investigating music exams at the time, along with the careers of private music teachers like Miss Diemer and the motivations and experiences of exam candidates like Miss Robarts. The next phase of this research project seeks to make contact with living descendants of these individuals, with the intentions of sharing what has been discovered so far and perhaps gathering further information from family recollections. If you are a descendant of either of these individuals and would like to take part in this research or just find out more, please respond to this post and Ross will get in touch to provide further information. Many thanks, Ross Purves About Dr Ross Purves Ross Purves is Associate Professor of Music Education at the UCL Institute of Education and a former music teacher and teacher trainer in Bedfordshire. He has a long-standing interest in the history of English music education and devoted much of his doctoral studies to this topic. He has also presented historical findings at UK history of education academic conferences.
Dale family - Potton, Bedfordshire
This is probably a long shot, but I have just discovered a potential family member who was living at 63 King's Street, Potton in 1979. Her name was Eileen Rita Dale. I have no idea whether this was her married name or not - the only info I have is that she was the informant on my great aunt's death certificate in 1979 and 63 Kings Street was the address given. I wonder whether anyone might remember a Dale family at that address.
