1812 or 1872?

Postby bmht » Sat Apr 26, 2008 3:16 pm

Have just discovered this stone on site, fits the building into this period and if its 1812 the earliest recorded date so far! Ties in with the French Napoleonic POW associations with the site nicely.

I think it looks like 1872, the third figure looks different to the first.
If they where both 'ones' I think they would look more similar.

Saying that, the letters above it all look fairly irregular.

Looks like 1852 to me. Do you have someone who is partially sighted and used to working things out with the tips of their fingers?

Personally I'd say E D J Davies 1872.

Because there would have to be three of them.

Yep, 1872, the gap size between 8 and 2 implies that for me... maybe a tad simple? I don't know...
