I ordered just a single document; the Hatfield and St Albans Railway Company Minute Book. I made a start on reading and photographing it; it needs much more time spending on it. I will give a report once I have seen all.

Attached below is an extract from a document at The National Archives at Kew entitled, "Hatfield and St Albans Railway Journal". (RAIL 295 (1, 2, 3, 4)).

In the extract from June 1864, there is mention of, "Advertising" in both the "Daily Telegraph" and "Railway News".  Does anybody already have - or can anyone obtain copies of those magazines/papers from that date, whereby we may be able to find the aforementioned advertising?

The advert should relate to the Hatfield and St Albans Branch Line.  In what capacity, I do not know.  For example, it might be an advert offering jobs on the railway line, or construction or perhaps simply advertising it's existance.

Would be interesting to find out!!

Two Tithe Maps, one a closeup of Smallford from 1838 - clearly showing the area known as Smallford next to Hollybush Hall, and the other image showing the general area around Smallford in 1840.  You can clearly make out the cross roads of Hatfield Road and Station Road (presumably before Station Road gained that name).  (The images below are previews, for full size see the top post)
