  • Though the book is interesting, all of the above recipes use proprietary seasonings. I was wondering if anyone knows whatever happened to these spice/herb listings. Obviously tastes have changed over time and these would probably not be to present day likings with our current trend for low salt and/or low fat content etc., I would however, be interested on a historical point of view as to what our ancestors regularly consumed.

  • I am a great grandson of James Lewis Dowling, who traded from Leadenhall Market in the late 1890s, his youngest son was Frank Dowling and his son was Stanley William Dowling who was my father.

    From census records I have traced James ( aged 65yrs) living with his wife Elizabeth, son Frank and a servant Alice Bayles on Norsey Road, Billericay in 1911.

    I wonder if anyone reading this has any further information to pass on. Many thanks.
