The 1st British Hero ~ Admiral Horatio Nelson and The Napoleonic 1805 Battle of Trafalgar

Admiral Nelson-Battle of Trafalgar-1805

The Battle of Trafalgar (21 October 1805) was a naval engagement fought by the British Royal Navy against the combined fleets of the French and Spanish Navies during the the Napoleonic Wars with the French (1803–1815). During the battle, the British Royal Navies’ Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson, was shot by a French musketeer and died shortly before the battle ended in an infamous glorious victory for the British Royal Navy. That ensured Britains’ world dominance and near full command of the High Seas. Which also ensured the French impending invasion of Britain never took place. With the complete defeat of the French at the Battle of Waterloo in 1814, spelled the end for the ‘ Little Corporal’ ~ Napoleon Bonaparte and the newly formed French Republic.

Drake & The Spanish Armada

English fireships are launched at the Spanish armada off Calais

I know I have the body of a weak and feeble woman, but I have the heart and stomach of a king, and of a king of England too; and think foul scorn that Parma or Spain, or any prince of Europe should dare to invade the borders of my realm.

Sir Francis Drake – favoured by HRH Queen Elizabeth I of England defeated Catholic King Philip II of Spain’s Spanish Armada in 1588 off the coast of the British Isles in one of the most famous battles and naval engagements in history.

As I’ve been confused since high school about this problem in word meanings and similar pronunciation of those particular innocuous in their subtlety words within the English language that sound the same but have several different possible meanings and Spelled ‘quite’  differently, That as a boy, I found quite difficult to master. Which make them quite special. Words like or such as: there, their & they’re etc. ., I’ve decided post this puzzle post.
One example in the Oxford English dictionary is which, witch or, wich.
Which is like whichever. Witch is obviously a female practitioner of witchcraft hocus pocus, magic crystal Halloween BS.
The other word ‘Wich’ is used as a place name as in Nantwich. Middlewich and Northwich (the former home and birthplace of Tim Burgess lead singer of the Madchester 1990s indie rock band The Charlatans). Which are all in the English county of Cheshire. Where it means I think they say has something to do with salt or salt mines near that town. As Cheshire is full of salt mines and salt water lakes and  famously, inland salt water marshes which are brilliant for rare sightings of sea birds inland.

Who killed Sarah Smith?

With Half a pint of poisen He came to visit me "Let all read may know this"

Notorious Crime: Who did the murdered girl accuse on her tombstone in 1763?

Written on the 250-year-old grave of Sarah Smith is the extraordinary claim that the buried girl was poisoned.

Who killed Sarah Smith? Ask the Rev. Eddy Sneyd of Saint Margarets church Wolstanton in the borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme. Because Mr Crick, a local historian and archive expert who studied the murder and who has spent the last three years investigating this 300 year old murder. He states that the parish records at that time during the 18th century written and recorded by the Rev. E. Sneyd CLEARLY show who C…S B…W is. .and solves the 18th century unsolved murder mystery case.

The grave has puzzled visitors to the church for centuries. Who was Sarah Smith – and more intriguingly, who was the person responsible for her murder, if she was sent to her death by the hand of a killer?

At that time, Reverend Edward Sneyd was the vicar at St Margaret’s, of the powerful and wealthy Sneyd family, the lords of the manor. It seems unlikely that a murder accusation would be allowed to be written onto a gravestone in his churchyard without his knowledge and approval.

Did the Rev Sneyd believe the story that was perhaps passed on to him by Sarah’s family? Did he know the identity of Sarah’s killer? It is not beyond the realms of possibility that Rev Sneyd was called out to visit Sarah as she lay on her death bed. It could even be that he heard her utter the accusation herself. It would be difficult to disbelieve the testimony of a dying girl.

Was it Rev Sneyd who convinced Sarah’s family to simply put the killer’s initials on the headstone, rather than identifying the killer outright?

There is no evidence that anyone was brought to justice for the murder – if there was a murder – but Sarah and her family would have exacted a small revenge on the killer, just from the wagging tongues that must have been set in motion.

Whoever C–––S B–––W was, he (or she) would have surely heard the rumours, perhaps people would stop talking when he walked into the local inn, or people would whisper behind his back.

Scant consolation perhaps for Sarah’s parents, Samuel and Martha, but village life would have at least been very uncomfortable for the poisoner.

But more than 250 years after Sarah’s death, the mystery may have in fact been solved by historian Jeremy Crick, who lives close to St Margaret’s Church in Wolstanton.

Mr Crick spent three years researching the grave, trawling through parish records and spending hours in the library, after coming across it during a stroll through the churchyard.

The true identify the killer, as a wealthy farmer, who lived at Red Street, not far from Sarah’s home at Bradwall estate. A man named Charles Barlow.
