Subject: Name of RAILWAY Company needed
Date: Mon, 29 Nov 2004 05:04:42 EST
I am trying to establish the name of either a possible railway line or a
company that made locomotive Engines c1881with links to Kent.
The 1881 census shows an ancestor who newly married was possibly on his
honeymoon. He was a visitor staying in the home of a man who's job was described
as Locomotive Engines DLJP? in Folkestone in Kent. My ancestor was described
as a Clerk for a Railway Company. As he did not appear to be staying in a
hotel and the railway connection seems very coincidental I am wondering if the
two men either knew one another or worked for the same company.
I have tried googling but cannot find and information about a RW company
called DLJP or may be DLK (the writing is not very clear)
Please can anyone help?
