Just read the guestbook to see if there
was anybody I knew. Alas no! Must be somebody out there who went to Binley Park School
1960 - 1964. I played football for Folly Lane on a Saturday and SC New Star on Sundays.
Lived in Styvechale before emigrating to Canada in 1979.
Now live in St Albert, Alberta. Where it's "bloody" cold at the moment.
This means of communication is great, especially this
service, for Coventrians and those who would like to be.

I emigrated to Australia in 1988 from Courthouse Green.
Attended Cardinal Wiseman School in Potters Green from September 1987 to July 1988. Head
teacher of my year was Mr Rutherford, and my form teacher was Mrs Frost (1F). If anyone
has any information on Wiseman or anyone attended this school - a reply would be greatly
appreciated. (I was twelve years old when I left in '88. I'm now the big 21)

[21 DEC 96] Templars School
I hear that the old Templars School, formerly Whoberly
School, is going to be demolished. Oh how my heart and mind suddenly remembered my days
there. Could someone please give some kind of update of the demise of my old school. Will
there be a new one?

On behalf of my Father-in-Law, Stanley Lowe of Toronto,
Ontario Canada, I am enquiring for information about the Lowe family history. If you can
supply any information which would help us reconnect this "lost" branch of the
Lowe family, we would be very grateful.
My Father-in-Law provides the following information:
(Mid-1800s) Great Grandfather John Lowe from somewhere in
Warwickshire. Occupation most likely Blacksmith and/or Engineer.
(Late 1800s-early 1900s) Grandfather David Elbert Lowe in
Birmingham and London. Occupation: Engineer. Made Boilers for Steamships in Birmingham.
Owned a Building Supply house in London. Son of David Elbert Lowe was Douglas Edward Lowe
(my Father-in-Law's Father) from first marriage, plus one other Son. First wife died.
Remarried and had more family (sons? daughters???) Family (including Douglas Edward) moved
to Toronto around 1911. After 2-3 years, David Elbert Lowe moved with wife and children
from that marriage to Palm Springs, Florida. Douglas Edward Lowe and brother (who was an
artist/painter) remained in Toronto. Brother killed in WW1.
My Father-in-Law has no other information on his
Grandfather's family after they moved to Palm Springs, nor any other information about
John Lowe's family in Warwickshire, such as which City.
Thank you for your help

[11 DEC 96] Exchange Teachers
I taught in Coventry (St Mary's in Gosford Green) in
1986-87, the year of the football cup winners. Have very fond memories of the town, and do
lament some of the changes that growth has produced since '87. Oh well. Write me at JMurk@aol.com or firstname.lastname@example.org

My name is Bill Hunt. My wife and I live in San Diego,
California. We came to the States in 1967, before the "SKY BLUES" reached the
dizzying heights. We settled first near to Cleveland, Ohio, moving out here in 1984. We
visit Coventry quite often and I still look upon it as home, but am saddened by what
happened to industry there. My final working days were spent at "MATRIX".
Come on COVENTRY CITY,start scoring some goals.
If anybody out there knows a guy named Thompson, who was an apprentice at the BTH in 1940,
and now lives in San Diego please let me have his address.

I just happened on your site while looking for information
about towncriers. It seems a real nice site, as well as a nice town. I am an American in
Pittsburgh, PA and an anglophile. As a hobby I portray an English Marine in military
reinactments of the American Revolutionary War. And also a musket man in the Virginia
Militia (loyal to King George) in French and Indian war reinactments. I believe the French
and Indian war in America was known as the 7 Years War in Europe.

I live in Canada, Welland Ontario to be exact. I was
surfing the net for something new and I came across this web page and thought I would drop
a line on e-mail. Not much to say right now. Maybe I'll be more talkative at a later time.

I was born and raised in Coventry then moved to America
with my family in 1981. I have since been back about 4 times and am amazed by the progress
the City has made each visit. My mum and dad, Jill and Les Johnson, send family and
friends their best. My name is Karen Johnson Musa, and I now reside in Dallas, TX. I would
love to hear from old friends who attended Blue Coat Church of England School.
