119 The family living in Picklescott, Church Stretton, Shropshire in 1851 (Piece 1984, Folio 245, Page 6) can be ruled out as their son David born around 1835 to 1838 is unmarried and still living with them on the 1871 and 1881 census in Church Pulverbatch, Atcham, Shropshire (1871 Piece 2762, Folio 42, Page 20, 1881 Piece 2642, Folio 67, Page 12). Thomas, David (P713)
 
120 There are two possible baptisms for George Duckworth in Newark.

The first, dated 3 Dec 1798, gave the mothers name as Mary Duckworth, no father was named.

The second, dated 20 Jun 1800, gave the parents names as James and Mary.

Searching for other baptisms of James and Mary's children shows the first was James, baptised on 28 Feb 1799.

Looking for marriages reveals James and Mary married on 4 Jun 1798. 
Duckworth, George (P872)
 
121 There is a burial of a William Elmer, age 17, at St Peter's Church, Boxted, Essex, England on 28th January 1838. This is very likely to be this William, as he doesn't seem to appear in any census record. Elmer, William (P1203)

129 William Congreve Hoe set up the first motorised bus service between Newark, Balderton and Farndon.

https://legacy.newarkadvertiser.co.uk/leisure/tourism/history/TimWarner/warner82.asp

I have written in the past about some of the early bus companies which were formed around Newark in the Twenties and Thirties.

The names of Gash\'s and Wrights - both of which started around this time - are well known while others, such as Garroods and Moyses, survive only in the memories of some of the town\'s older inhabitants.

The buses run by Mr William Hoe of Newark also fall into this category, although in the years after the first world war his small eight to ten-seater \'Hackneys\' became a familiar sight along the roads between Newark, Balderton and Farndon.

Indeed, Mr Hoe is credited with having been the first to establish a motorised bus service between those villages.

In later years he also founded a number of successful grocery stores in Newark - one on Millgate (No. 55) and one in the Arcade (plus a bi-weekly stall on Newark market) - and it is for these that he is perhaps best remembered.

William Congreve Hoe was born in Newark in 1870 and began his working life in his father\'s pub, the Reindeer on Northgate. In the census of 1891 he is listed as working there as his father\'s assistant.

Later that year, aged 21, William Hoe was married to Elizabeth Derry of Appletongate giving his occupation as carter.

The town\'s 1897 trade directory tells us that his carting business was based on Slaughterhouse Lane although by the turn of the century he had switched careers and began to follow in his father\'s footsteps, as landlord of the White Horse pub at 63 Millgate (closed 1935, demolished 1967).

By 1904 he had changed directions again, having established his first grocery shop at 55 Millgate where he and his wife took up residence.

A second shop, in the Arcade, was open by 1912 and business was booming. During the first world war all three of William\'s sons - Jack, Ernest and Bill - served in the armed forces. Ernest and Bill survived but Jack was killed in action (he is buried in France).

At the end of the war Ernest and Bill returned to Newark and became drivers in their father\'s latest venture, a bus service between Newark and Farndon and Balderton.

At first Ernest and Bill were the only drivers employed by the business, but following Bill\'s premature death (due to the after-effects of the war), Mr Bob White of Parliament Street was taken on.

William Hoe\'s grandson, Mr Ron Hoe, still lives in Newark and as a child can remember seeing the buses in his grandfather\'s yard off Parliament Street. (The yard had been bought to store produce for the shops).

Over the years William Hoe had a number of different buses although only ever two at a time. Each was given a name: Victoria and Princess are pictured here. Others included Shamrock and Pride of the Road.

B Both Victoria and Princess were constructed on Ford Model TT chassis, with coach work by the local firm of George Stephenson and Sons, the agricultural implement makers who had their works beside Newark\'s Trent Bridge.

Vehicle licensing records held at the Nottinghamshire Archives Office tell us that Princess (registration no. NN 2081) was registered by William Hoe on March 27, 1928.

The vehicle is described as a Ford Hackney and was painted green. Both Princess and Victoria had their share of incident with, on one occasion, Victoria toppling right over as Ernest Hoe was taking the tight corner from Lombard Street into Millgate.

Princess was writen-off when, during a run along Farndon Road, a burst fuel pipe sprayed petrol on to the hot exhaust.

There was an instant explosion and in the space of a few seconds, the whole bus was enveloped in flames.

Fortunately no passengers were on board at the time, although Mr White, who was driving, only just managed to jump clear. Princess (valued at £350 - £400) was reduced to ruin in a few minutes.

One man who remembers Hoe\'s buses well is Mr Owen Sharp whose family lived in Mount Pleasant, a small yard off Millgate.

Mr Sharp\'s father was a charge hand at Ransome and Marles (now NSK-RHP) and Mr Sharp recalls how Hoe\'s bus was one of those contracted to ferry employees to and from the works - setting off from King Street in time for the morning shift, back home at midday, back to Marles\'s in the afternoon, and back home again to King Street in the evening: four bus trips across town every day.

As far as can be ascertained, Hoe\'s buses ceased running in the early to mid Thirties.

Competition between bus companies at this time was very fierce as each operator fought for passengers.

Hoe\'s routes were targetted by a larger company who ensured that two buses were always on hand to overtake Hoe\'s Model TTs and race to the bus stops first.

It was dangerous practice, but one which led to the demise of many small operators such as Hoe\'s.

William Hoe retired from the bus business and concentrated on his other interests. Ernest took on a fish and chip shop owned by his father in Parliament Street, while one of William\'s daughters, Dolly, ran the grocery shop in the Arcade.

In later years William Hoe moved from Millgate to 46 Victoria Street where he died, in October, 1952, aged 83.

In compiling this article I am indebted to the following for their assistance: Mr and Mr Derrick Horbury, Mr and Mrs Owen Sharp, Mr Ron Hoe, Mr Ralph Stephenson and Mr Ernie Robb. Mr Brian Waters of Newark provided technical information about the buses in the photographs.

130 William Duckworth's army service record shows he worked for Mr Cafferatta. The 1881 census shows Redmond Cafferata living with his family at 23 Mill Gate, Newark, where his occupation was recorded as "Plaster Of Paris Manufacturer Employing 123 Men & 20 Boys".

Information on "Cafferata and Company" can be found here:

Duckworth, William (P1738)
 
131 William was apparently "a real local character" who "used to dock dogs tails with his teeth for a shilling a time!" His grandson "a small child at the time, had to go to the local ale house for him and supply the booze whilst he was performing this grizzly task!". Elmer, William (P1636)
