Enjoyed your web site. It is quite comprehensive!!
I am looking for an out-of-touch friend. Her name is Amanda
Jane Beasley. Mandy's parents owned a bookstore/newspaper shop in Coventry. I believe
Mandy attended Coventry Cathedral School (?). About 12(?) years ago her parents sold the
bookstore, moved to Marlborough and bought a fish and chip shop. Mandy married John Perry
sometime between 1984-1986. Mandy has one sister. Mandy was/is a doctor in Birmingham
before moving to the island of Jersey. It is my understanding that Mandy and John are no
longer on Jersey. Perhaps someone can point me towards:
-- an address of national association of doctors
-- Coventry Cathedral School's address (if it exists), so I can check alumni records (if
Thank you for any help you might be able to provide.

I am a historian in Los Angeles California USA and I belong
to a group of performers who do the court of Elizabeth I. This comming
weekend we are doing an event that the promoters have positioned in Coventry England in
1565 when Elizabeth visited Sir Robert Dudley Earl of Leicester and he proposed marriage
to her. I would like to set up a dialog with an interested party in England who can be a
year round liaison for me to help with various research projects and the purchase of books
on the period that are only available in England. I am looking for someone who has
information on the songs the court would have sung and dances they would have done.
On a more personal note I play Robert's brother Ambrose
Dudley, Earl of Warwick, any information on him would be much appreciated.... any
biographys of Courtiers of the period would be appreciated.... information on their
estates and the household positions under Queen Elizabeth would be helpful. We also have a
Guard group and are looking for any information on the group that guarded the chambers of
I thank you for your help and am looking forward to a long
and continued dialog with someone there in England.

Dear sir / madam,
I am requesting information as to whether a "Convent
of Mercy Coventry" is existing today. If so would you please advise on the
contact address. My mother is researching family history on a relation who once attended
the convent as a nun.
Many thanks Alan Hough <firstname.lastname@example.org>

My name is Debra Williams. It was great to see Coventry on
the World Wide Web. My grandpa was born in Atherstone (John Sidney Cook) and my grandma
was born in Newcastle under Lyme (Ada May Emery).
I know something about Coventry, having contact with family
in Allesley Park, Radford and Fillongley. They are from the Cook side of the family, but I
would love to hear from anyone on the Emery side. They are somewhere in the Stoke-on-Trent
area. Frank Emery was grandma's brother.
I live in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. So far away but
with the web and guestbook so close. Wonderful service and lovely to read all letters to
Hope to hear from any relatives on the web.
Best wishes to all from Australia

I had a great time during my trip back to Coventry, a little saddened about
the changes though, particularly on the Stoney Stanton/Bell Green Road. I always grew up
with the railway bridge being there, and it seemed sad that it had been pulled down. Such
a chaos with the way the traffic was routed too.
I had missed family and friends, but felt no immediate urge
to want to live back in Coventry as I had noticed that it seemed to have gotten 'rougher'
since I'd left. Whether I was just being oblivious to it before hand, but I noticed it
this more this time I was being a 'visitor'.
I do keep checking up on the CWN web pages and looking for
updates. I think I noticed in the guestbook that somebody else had mentioned the Coventry
Evening Telegraph site. I hope they can get somebody to update it soon.
Thanks for your messages, I'm always checking on the page
