Chris Aspin tells me that 'sweeling' is used in the Rossendale area for burning the moors. First time I've ever come across another usage.

Wendy, sorry for the delayed reply but I lost track with the change of thread. Yes, I think he may be my Peter Willicy, it's the only possibility I've found. I haven't done much famlly history in the last few years because I seemed to have exhausted the internet information and I don't travel much now (and I'm in Somerset). A friend, Shiela Dewhurst, found the information and passed it on to me. She wrote:

-------------------
I looked to see if I could find a Peter Willicy being baptised at Balderstone - none, but I did find at Woodplumton, which is only a Pony and Trap ride away from Balderstone, these.
ALL AS SPELT AND ALL FROM THE I.G.I. and all at WOODPLUMPTON

MC. Willicy Peter 18-3-1764 father Leo. WIllicy ( short for Leonard??)
MC. Willasie Leo.19-8-1731 father Peter Willasie.
HM Willasie Peter to Eliza Roads  10-4-1722
MC. Willasie Peter 6-1-1695  father Wm. Willasie  (would make his age about 27yrs when married?)
HM Willace William to Margart Woods (as spelt) 2-12-1692 at Broughton Nr. Preston below this has been entered the same Marriage but at Woodplumpton.
----------------------------------------

Also from Lancs Online Parish Clerks:

Marriages at the Church of St Anne in the Parish of Woodplumpton
Marriages recorded in the Register for the years 1604 - 1613

25 Jan 1612        Thomas Brewar and Anne Willesye

Baptisms at St Anne in the Parish of Woodplumpton
Baptisms recorded in the Register for the years 1604 - 1613
21 Mar 1605        John Wyllesy sone of John Wyllesy
21 Mar 1605       Christopher Wyllesie sone of John Wyllesy
16 Feb 1607        Anne Willesie doughter of John Willesie
19 May 1612        Richard Willesye sonne of John Willesye

Burials at St Anne in the Parish of Parish of Woodplumpton
Burials recorded in the Register for the years 1604 - 1613
3 May 1612        John Willesye

I haven't tried to pursue it further because the Willicys are not on my main lines of descent but I was curious about the Doctor Willicy in Balderstone.

I was deep into Rolt's 'Inland Waterways of England' and came across a possible origin got the term 'Taken for a mug'. He says that there was a pub called the Mug House at Bewdley Quay on the Severn and due to the fast flowing water between there and Bridgnorth upstream the owners of the Trows that traded on the river would go there to hire a gang of blokes to bow haul the boats past the rapids. It was the custom to seal the hire bargain with a mug of beer and men who were digruntled with the outcome would say that they had been 'taken for a mug'. (Page 19)

Can we keep away from the rude stuff please....please !

My Dad used to say he was going to "see a man about a dog " , if he was about to leave company for a while (for any reason)...

I recall  " going to turn my bike round " too....

Catty is going to say he hasn't heard of that one either Stanley...!

but  your right.....

Don't lock this one down though , just yet , eh  ...it's still fun , and thankfully not too rude ....yet !

Change of direction maybe....BLATHERING ?....there's been a lot of it about lately.

I know "blithering" is usually coupled with "idiot"  (say nothing.. Bradders !).....there is a subtle difference and Belle will know the Scottish / North East version ......(which is.?)

Surely all from the same root .....

I'm sure you are thinking of the constipated mathematician who used to work it out in logs.
