Aotea Passenger List (August 1896)
Short version of the passenger list for the Aotea, departing London on 5th August 1896 and Plymouth on 8th August 1896. Harold Wooster is on the list along with the other people mentioned in the newspaper report of their arrival into New Zealand in September 1896.
It would appear that most passengers from England disembarked at Cape Town

Appointment as Postal Clerk in Bath in 1849
Appointment as Postal Clerk in Bath in 1849
William was appointed on the recommendation of Viscount Duncan, MP for Bath.
However, it appears that the other entries on the page were also recommendations by their respective MP's, so it is possible that this was just part of the protocol and maybe William didn't know Viscount Duncan personally.
The stamp over the document saying "minute cancelled" might suggest that this appointment was cancelled. We do know, however, from the 1851 census that William was a post office clerk by 1851.

James Wooster's Arrival in New York (1858)
James Wooster's Arrival in New York (1858)
We believe this is likely to be James arriving in New York.
Family story goes that he had emigrated to America & made his fortune on gold & owned a hotel.
We understand his nephew Edward Hawley Wooster had spent time with uncle Jim before returning to the UK.
We have no information on James, if he produced a family etc.

Letter from George William Wooster to London Solicitors
Letter from George William Wooster to London Solicitors
A letter from George William Wooster to London solicitors Lloyds, enquiring about the Brandon Estates. The letter is flood damaged and has been transcribed here, but some words are difficult to decipher.

To Mesors Lloyd
Dear Sirs,
For some time past the different Brandonís of our family have been meeting to discuss matters pertaining to property said to be held in the County Chancery. The famous Brandon Estates are said to be well known to lawyers in and around London. I through my mother am a direct descendant hence my desire to know and search out all matters pertaining thereto. My late mother was the daughter of Richard Brandon of Paradice, Rotherhithe. Now the families have been doctrine?? for in Dougal and Chambers next of kin. My motherís name Henrietta Brandon nee Wooster.
The property is said to be, area around Elephant and Castle, around St Paulís churchyard, some in Sloan Street W, some in the Old Kent Road, some in the Strand. Some years ago Parker Troop? and Parker are said to have had some dealings with the Brandon Estates. Most of the families were christened at St Maryís Rotherhithe or St James Bermondsey and some at the Parish Church Suffolk.
Harriett Brandon was the Duchess of Brandon, Dansie.
Sir William Brandon died suddenly in the House of Lords. I also hear that a special Bill of Equity was passed by the House of Lords in connection with the said estates. We are also informed that we are in a direct line of descendants from Charles Brandon Duke of Suffolk. Our crest is the dove and the olive branch.
Mr Lloyd, I have given you the particulars, will you please make the necessary search and find out full particulars regarding this property also let me know what your terms are at the earliest as we are anxious to put it in motion.
I remain
Yours?
G W Wooster

Mary Beatrice Ridley - A Death Certificate with Multiple Errors
Mary Beatrice Ridley - A Death Certificate with Multiple Errors
Mary Beatrice (Ann) Ridley's death certificate with at least six errors/inaccuracies.
1. Her middle name was really Ann, but she had used Beatrice since her marriage.
2. Wrong spelling of her father's surname.
3. Her grandmother's name (Mary) has been used for her mother's name (Charlotte).
4. Wrong surname for mother. Should be Norris rather than Colling.
5. Age of marriage is wrong. Should be 20 (21 stated on marriage certificate) rather than 19.
6. Wrong husband. Henry Featherstonhaugh Wooster is quoted as her husband, when he was actually her father-in-law.

The undertaker was the informant, so that may explain some of these anomalies.
