I've never come across the expression "super feet" before but apparently it is the volume equivalent to a square foot with a thickness of one inch, as used in pricing timber.

Hi Anne, thank you for the feed back. I thought the reference to Noah Yardley Wright on page 503 could be of some help with family research. Sorry, it looks like 508, good thing I have the original ☺ Edited by member, 4th Jan 2018 2:24 pm

Yes I'm sure John is listed on the commemorative 'Watchmakers board' on Spon Street.

Anybody related to the W H Yardley at number 7 Warwick Lane? There's a picture of it before demolition in the Coventry Evening Telegraph 3rd June 1936 page 8. The Online version is almost invisible but it's tolerable from microfilm.

Hi Helen, he is on my tree but only very distantly. He actually died in 1916 but his wife Ann Maria died in 1936. I have found the picture in the Telegraph. As you say a bit obscure, thank you.

Now I am on my PC I can work out that William Henry Yardley would have been my great grandad William's cousin. Here is the picture from the newspaper, Neil. As Helen says it is not very clear. I wonder if she has a better copy. W H Yardley was living at 7 Warwick Lane in 1911. Edited by member, 7th Jun 2019 11:33 am
