22 All the early Thrale entries in the Sandridge Parish Church Registers (Bishops Transcript, Hertford Transcript, Steele MSS, Sandridge Typescript) are easily identified except for Francis Thrale and a Nicholas Thrale, gentleman, who died in 1597. The Register tells us that these two men were brothers. Francis Thrale had six children baptised between 1586 and 1592 one of whom was Petronelle who was baptised in 1588, and Francis in 1587. It is apparent that these members of the family had come to Sandridge to join their kinsmen in Sandridge and then moved away again. Nicholas is a rarely used name in the Thrale family and it is intriguing to remark the sad baptism and burial record in the one year of 1601 of Edward, son of Nicholas Thrale, at Clophill, which is, of course, in the Hundred of Flitt! Thrale, Francis (I1372)
23 Among the many upstanding personalities produced by Tudor and Stuart Denbighshire - "the powerhouse of Renaissance Wales" - few were more remarkable than that Richard Clough. The 5th son of a Denbigh glover, he was educated as a chorister at Chester Cathedral (where his fine voice and quick intelligence soon attracted influential patrons), moved on to London, and made a useful pilgrimage to Jerusalem - where he became an honorary "Knight of the Holy Sepulchre", whence the "Sir" sometimes attached to his name. In his early twenties, Clough moved to Antwerp, - the commercial capital of Northern Europe - as a "factor" (or manager) for Sir Thomas Gresham, 'the Queen's Merchant Royal' and it originator of the adage that 'Bad money drives at good'. Thus he became one of the leading loan - negotiator, supplier of European goods (including smuggled armament us) , and gather of political intelligence for Queen Elizabeth's government. Though he had a passion for detailed reports, Clough was also a man of wide ranging ideas: he was instrumental in founding the the London Stock Exchange, and enthusiastically aided the Denbigh geographer Humphrey Llwyd, who called him 'the most complete man'.

Having grown (in the words of a Denbigh saying) "as rich as a Clough", Richard briefly returned home in 1566-7, to marry the equally remarkable Katheryn of Berain and begin his 'prodigy' mansions of Bachygraig near Tremeirchion and Plas Clough, near Denbigh: built-in Antwerp style by Flemish craftsmen, these where the first brick houses in Wales. Then he returned to an increasingly war-torn Europe for further adventures - including arrest as a spy - only to die at Hamburg in 1570, aged scarcely 40.

Clough's scheme for making the River Clwyd navigable thus remained unrealised, but he clearly never forgot his origins. His heart (and some say is right hand) were sent home in a silver casket, to be buried at a now unmarked spot within St Marcella's parish Church near Denbigh.

25 An Alice Thrale cited as marrying Thomas Clare in Upper Gravenhurst, Bedfordshire, England on 27 January 1620. There is no evidence that it is this Alice Thrale other than the age seems about right. More research is needed. Thrale, Alice (I739)

32 As far as I can make out they had a son out of wedlock I was told at some point he was called HARRY but I have come across a letter from the civil service to a MR HENRY BISHOP THRALE saying that an entry had been found that a birth on 20.3.1891 that a henry bishop sims son of rose sims in the book and that he's put his name as thrale and they want a explanation. Thrale "Harry", Henry Bishop (I1271)

34 Ashes buried in Horder Garden H15.

The service was conducted at the crematorium in front of around 200 people. It was a joint faith service, with Jewish prayers and readings by Rabbi Hall and Christian prayers and readings by Pastor Burnett.

Her eulogy which follows was written by her Son David Thrale and was delivered by her other son Stacey Thrale.

"Firstly we would like to thank, Rabbi Hall and Pastor Burnett, for leading today's service. We would also like to thank all the kind people who have helped both Mum and her family. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

David and I would like to tell you about our mother Shirley ...

Mum was born before the war in Willesden to a Jewish family. She had a younger sister Lindsay and an elder brother Rodney who died before Shirley was born.

Mum could be rebellious and as a child she once decided that she didn't like her bedroom because of a cracked window pane. Whilst her parents were out, she and Lindsay swapped furniture between the bedroom and the living room. Of course when their parents returned home they were not at all happy so they had to change it back again.

Shirley soon met our father Ken not far from here in a Golders Green dance hall. Soon after they first met Mum saw Dad from her bus, so she jumped off and deliberately bumped into him pretending it was an accidental meeting but Dad never knew!

Mum and Dad were well suited as they both liked Jazz clubs, dancing and smart clothes. They often spent many a romantic evening at the pictures, with Mum's 11 year-old sister Lindsay in tow who always insisted on sitting in the middle.

When her parents decided to move to Dunstable Mum rebelled and set-up a flat with her friend Denise when she was 17. She travelled every weekend back to Dunstable, to enjoy the luxuries of their bath. Her kind-hearted parents would both give her money, saying, "take this, don't tell your Dad", and "take this, don't tell your Mum".

Ken & Shirley married in 1959, a little while after she started working for the Bank of India and then Handley Page where she was secretary to Sir Handley Page himself. Mum gave up work after we were born,

Once my brother and I had both reached school age, mum started work again but only part-time so that she could spend as much time with us as possible.

For a short while Dad was out of work. Mum was very strong and made many sacrifices to steer our family through these difficult times. When the rent man called we remember hiding behind the sofa with Mum pretending to be out.

Mum was school secretary at Princess Frederica Primary School and later at Chalkhill Primary School. This allowed her to be at home with us during the school holidays. We have many happy memories, of all day swimming at Kingsbury open-air pool, Willesden Swimming pool, Butlins at Bognor Regis, holidays in Uncle Brian's drafty flat in Hove & Sunday afternoon trips to buy ice cream from our favourite shop in Childs Hill. Whilst at Chalkhill School Mum gave the headmaster Kenneth Rudge - a budding author - the idea for one of his children's books, a story about a teenager going to a big open air music festival, just like the famous Reading Music Festival that Mum used to help to organise.

For years Mum worked at the celebrated Marquee club, London's version of the Cavern. When she started there it was a Soho Jazz club. As time changed this small venue became a rock club. Almost all the major bands played there, Thin Lizzy, The Who, Genesis, The Jam & many more. Mum also saw the birth of Punk, and later the likes of Tom Robinson and Adam Ant.

When we were younger Mum took us to see our favourite band - Slade at the Marquee. Mum even got us into their dressing room. Our young impressionable minds were horrified as Mum took us down Wardour Street, taking time to say hello to the strip club's bouncers.

Just like at home in Kingsbury, it seemed like everyone in Soho knew her. That was Mum, she liked good food, music and going out, but most of all she LOVED people.

We often thought that our family was lucky to have so many good friends. It wasn't luck it was because of Mum. People saw her special kindness, friendship, good humour and her special zest for life. Mum would find time to talk to people. She put people at ease and let them know that they were important to her. We remember her many good deeds like putting up a friend of mine whose house had been damaged in a fire. Mum and Dad often told us "You can't choose your family, but you can choose your friends".

When we were older, Mum returned to full-time work as a Personal Assistant to Brent's Director of Housing. She eventually went on to become a Principal Homeless Persons Officer. This brought out the best in Mum, so many different people to mix with.

Shirley and Ken had a long and happy marriage, and made many close friends. We remember countless long and happy dinner parties held at our home. As they grew older together they enjoyed many happy foreign holidays. Sadly their marriage was cut short by Dad's sudden death in 1987, five weeks before their 28th Anniversary.

In time Mum met Anton, whilst visiting a good friend in Jamaica. They were married in 1991, and have been together ever since. Mum had a few happy years of retirement living an easy & relaxed life in the Caribbean. Mum lived in Jamaica with Anton for about five years. She made many more good friends there.

Mum dearly loved Anton She was also devoted to Anton's son, Shane and brought him up as her own. Despite the pain she suffered every day she continued to look after Shane and helped him to settle into his new school. We can clearly see all the good things that she taught us, in Shane. Shane will miss her terribly.

In her last days David had the pleasure of telling Mum that Michelle is pregnant. Mum was delighted to hear that her third grandchild was on the way and told everyone that visited her. David's good friend Lee then told her about his forthcoming marriage. Quick as a flash Mum quipped "About bloody time!" Even in her last few days, she made friends with nurses and cleaners at the hospital, and told everyone that she was determined to "make this a short stay".

We are all richer for having known Shirley. She has showed so many people that life isn't about money or things, or who you are. It is about family, people, friendship, and love.

Shirley's epitaph is not in the words that I am now reading or those that will be placed on her plaque, but is written in the hearts of the many many people who experienced her love, kindness and humour.

I leave you with the words that Shirley used after both her sons were married-off. These words are as appropriate now as they were then ...

"Free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, I am free at last." 
Block, Shirley Helen (I370)

39 Born by 1518, first son of Richard Vernon of Haddon, by Margaret, dau. of Sir Robert Dymoke of Scrivelsby, Lincs. His mother married secondly Sir William Coffyn and third Sir Richard Manners, brother of Thomas, first Earl of Rutland. Educ. Magdalen, Oxf.; G. Inn, adm. 1537. Married first Margaret, dau. of Sir George Tailboys, de jure 9th Lord Kyme, widow of Phillip Bullock; and secondly Matilda, dau. of Sir Ralph Longford of Longford, Derbys. Suc. family Aug 1517. KB 20 Feb 1547. J.p. Derbys. 1539-d.; commr. musters 1539, array 1546, chantries 1546, relief 1550.

The Vernon family was established at Haddon by the 14th century and its members were to attain prominence both locally and at court during the 15th. Following the early death of his father George Vernon's wardship, and the custody of his lands in Westmorland, were granted in Apr 1522 to Cardinal Wolsey, Sir William Tyrwhitt, Lady Elizabeth Tailboys and her son Gilbert, and he was married to one of the Tailboys daughters; but it was his uncle Sir John Vernon who administered the bulk of his inheritance and advised him during his early years ‘in all his causes and his great affairs’. After Oxford and a spell at Grays Inn, Vernon followed his uncle, then serving as a councillor in the marches, and remained in the elder man's service until his death early in 1545.

It was during these years that Vernon had his only experience of the Commons. In possession since 1536 of wide lands centred on Nether Haddon and Bakewell in the hundred of High Peak, and a justice of the peace of more than three years’ standing, he could expect to follow those of his forbears who had sat for the shire; the name of his fellow-knight is lost. Made a knight at Edward VI's coronation, Vernon was one of those claimed by Sir William Paget to have been included in the first, but not the second, list of those whom Henry VIII had intended to create barons. In the event he was never even raised to the quorum of the commission or pricked sheriff; the fact that he was nominated for the office nine times between 1543 and 1552 implies that he was 'persona non grata', although on what ground it is impossible to say. He was one of the three Derbyshire gentlemen who refused to comply with Mary's demand for a forced loan of £100 in 1557, and although the receiver, Sir John Porte, solicited the 5th Earl of Shrewsbury's help, it is unknown whether or not they ultimately contributed. In 1564 Bishop Bentham, an ardent reformer, rated Vernon ‘a great justice [in] religion as in all other things’, but he died before he could be transferred to the quorum. Renowned ‘for his magnificence ... for his kind reception of all good men, and his hospitality’, he was dubbed the ‘King of the Peak’.

The last of his line, Vernon probably suffered from ill-health for several years before his death on 31 Aug 1565. His heirs were his two daughters, Margaret, the wife of Sir Thomas Stanley, and the celebrated Dorothy, who had married John Manners. By his will of 18 Aug. 1565 he bequeathed six Derbyshire manors and two in Staffordshire to his wife for life. His executors were to take the profits of his manor of Kibblestone, in Staffordshire, and two Cheshire manors for 16 years after his decease to pay his debts, funeral expenses and the fulfilment of his will, which included among numerous bequests the provision of one gold chain worth £20 to his godson, Gilbert Talbot, the future Earl of Shrewsbury, ‘as a remembrance of my good will towards him’. His wife, his son-in-law John Manners, his brother-in-law Nicholas Longford and his ‘loving neighbours and faithful friends’ Thomas Sutton and Richard Wennesley were each to receive £20 for their services as executors, while his ‘right worshipful friends’ Sir John Zouche and Sir Francis Leke were each to have a horse. Vernon was buried in Bakewell church where a large table tomb in the centre of the Vernon chapel bears the recumbent effigies of himself, clothed in plate armour, and his two wives.
