obertson, England, and we reproduce it by courtesy of the Trust Company. Following its good example thus set, the Register has sought information from oversea, relative to Medford, Staffordshire. We applied at the British Consulate in Boston and were told It must be a small place, as there is no post office of that name in our list, and were advised to write to Staffordshire County Council. Doing so, we were in due time in receipt of the following:— Meaford—Staffordshire. 27th October, 1921. Dear Sir, I have your letter of the 10th instant desiring information with regard to the above. I do not think I can do better than send you the enclosed extract from Kelly's Directory of this County. The enclosed three pictures may also be of interest to you. Yours faithfully, Eustace Joy, M. A. Meaford. Meaford is a very small village and hamlet near the river Trent, about 1 1/4 miles north-north-west from Stone station, on the Colwich and Stoke section of the Nort

Meaford is a very small village and hamlet near the river Trent, about 1 1/4 miles north-north-west from Stone station, on the Colwich and Stoke section of the North Staffordshire railway, in the Kibblestone quarter of Ston
one. We regret that we cannot in this issue present the beautiful views mentioned, but hope to in the near future. By the above it will be seen that the English Medford, now called Meaford (pronounced Mefford), is not a municipality, but is an outlying village or hamlet adjoining the town (or city) of Stone, being counted in its census return and served by its post office. In reading the above, and also a Kelly's Directory of earlier date (in Boston), we are reminded of the acreage and extent of the Brooks estate in West Medford, and also of that little village and its facilities as we found it in 1870, and also of the relation it bore to the Medford of that time. We have replied with thanks to Clerk Joy, sending some illustrated literature relating to our Medford, and trust that thus reaching our hands across the sea, we may get in closer touch with old Medford, we mean the older Medford, i.e., present Meaford, where three centuries ago Governor Cradock had his country home.
