      Oh, it's OK. I was referring to myself and sometimes changing initials. I was raised in an old fashioned way and I appeal to older fellows and I like them so I have been married several times, which is what I meant. If I wanted to play with my names and initials I could come up with quite a few interesting things, like I had suggested "Dott" could = Do. (Dorothy) T. T.
      I reckon you should keep those initials under wraps. Ha!
      G'Night Anna. Sleep well.

          Thanks for the link. xxxxx

          I believe the purveyor of this story was also featured in the DM one other time....for photographing ghosts.

          • “Dott” allegedly = The Rev. William Patrick Dott.

            • I note no record of his whereabouts in 1881. Ellie and I were discussing this briefly a few months back and I couldn't find him in the 1881 census either, (in one way reassuring, because I'm still a relative beginner with Ancestry and thought it might just be me).

              Could he have been in South Africa perhaps, as he seems to have become familiar with that country later on?

                Hi Dave,

                He would have been 13 in 1881. Possibly he was away at boarding school?

                Three of his sisters were staying with their Forfar (maternal) relatives in Scotland at the time.

                  Yes i'm sorry about that...The original idea was a good one and rejected by Paul Begg as sudo science when we made definitive story.

                  I've since been collecting photographs of the Kozminski family and believe i traced technology at Edinbough University that might have been of interest...At least better than the immage usually used of Kozminski a drawing with no connection which is rather misleading..But sudo science and science fiction still

                  Perhaps one day science will be able to recreate all your relatives from your DNA...but it aint been done yet

                  The photo released by Tim Atkins is simply a sketch based on a small sample and only an artist impression....it could have been done far better i can assure you

                  Yours Jeff

                    The new A to Z will show where he was in 81

                        Re the 1881 census, there are 2 William Dotts.

                        One aged 26, one aged 56

                        One living in Toxteth (Liverpool), one living in Margate.

                        Unless I've missed it, no 13 year old William Dott is in the 1881 census.?



                        Happy New Year all

                          Hence, (together with his sisters not being in their usual haunts), my puzzlement/speculation about his whereabouts...I look forward to enlightenment from the new AtoZ!
