Therfield in The Times, 1785-1985


References to Therfield found in The Times Digital Archive, a Thomson Gale "Free For All Trial Site", during the first week of May 2004.  The URL has since disappeared.  A few brief items are transcribed in full, but most are quoted from, and some are summarised.  If your ancestors were natives of Therfield, you probably won't find much of interest here anyway, because this motley collection of clergy, gentry, farmers, and soldiers (and their families) were mostly outsiders.  If nothing else, the quoted pieces give an interesting flavour of the changes in newspaper style and language since 1795.  Surnames use CAPITAL letters, but there is also a Name Index
