Hello All

How interesting! Yesterday I transcribed a birth registry for FreeBMD for a
baby named Orange Gardener. If anyone is interested, it was 1858 2nd
quarter registered at Hambledon,2a page 91.

I was quite entranced at the fanciful naming and here you are talking about
people named Orange and Golden.

Such a coincidence.

Now you've got me at it, just found several men in Essex with the Christian
name 'Orange'!
