The Co. is almost circular in form, and its surface shows a series of quiet and beautiful undulations. It is watered by the Wye, Lugg, Monnow, Arrow, and Frome, also the Teme, which flows on the NE. boundary. All these streams are well stocked with fish. Of late agriculture has been greatly improved in the Co. the soil is peculiarly suitable for the growth of timber, which is very abundant. The pear and apple orchards of Herefordshire are famous; while the luxuriant meadow-land affords pasture for a well-known breed of oxen. Marl and clay form the chief part of the soil; the subsoil is mostly limestone. There are no valuable minerals, and the manufactures are insignificant."<br />

  136. The extant portion of the original source from which this translation is derived (covering places K-Y) is at Hereford City Library. The first part of the original history (A-K) went missing during the 1700s, but, as the translation explains, some of it survived in extracts by others, and these extracts (Aconbury to Kinnersley) have also been included in this publication as Section I. Places K-Y constitute Section II, and a third section provides information about Hereford Cathedral, Bishops of Hereford, Nobility of the County, 'Wonders', Sheriffs of Herefordshire, and Mayors of Hereford, and there is an overall surname index.</li>

  140. This is a very entertaining little book, painstakingly researched and documenting all known bridges on the Wye, past and present. Begins with bridges in the upper reaches, where the railway bridges and landowners building private footbridges to reach different parts of their estate hold sway, through to the bridges in the City of Hereford, and on to the mouth of the Wye where the possible crossing built by the Romans sits close by the new road bridge.</li>

  190. It is not always easy to locate your ancestors in the IGI using the search mechanisms provided at the above LDS site. Manually typing the batch numbers into the IGI search screen can be tedious. Hugh Wallis has made an exhaustive search of the likely ranges of batch numbers and created a database of those numbers and the source records that they apply to. A very powerful feature included is a hotlink from each batch number to the actual search engine provided at the Family Search site, including the ability to enter the surname you are looking for. This makes it very easy to search all the batches for a particular geographic location using just the last name you are searching for - something that is not possible directly from the LDS site without doing a lot of typing. This is <a href="http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~hughwallis/IGIBatchNumbers.htm"> Hugh Wallis's site</a>.</blockquote>

Copies of certificates may be obtained from either the General Register Office (GRO), or from a Superintendent's Registrar's Office of the District at which the event was first registered. If the District no longer exists, this would be the Office to which its registers have been moved.</blockquote>
  200. <ul><li><strong>Obtaining a certificate from a Superintendent Registrar's Office.</strong>
  201. <ul><li>The original records of events, completed by the Registrar of the time, have always been retained by the District Registrar. In Herefordshire, these records were held in several different locations within the county, and in the past an application would be made to the Superintendent Registrar at one of these locations to search the local indexes he or she holds to the registers, and produce a certificated copy from the original record of the event. However in recent years all registers have been moved to the Herefordshire Register Office in Hereford Town Hall, and applications should now be made to that office.<br />Family Records and Copy Certificates service for more details. The cost of a certificate obtained this way is £9.00.<br />
  202. Details of all districts to handle Herefordshire registrations prior to centralisation may be found in Brett Langston's list of <a href="https://www.ukbmd.org.uk/reg/hef.html">Herefordshire Registration Districts (1837-1974)</a>. </li>
  203. </ul></li>
  204. <li><strong>Obtaining a certifcate from the GRO</strong>
  205. <ul><li>Certificates from the GRO are issued from copies of the original records; however there is considerable advantage in being able to search indexes to the whole country in one place, so many people prefer to do this, rather than risk a protracted search locally. The first step is to obtain a GRO reference to the event. You can then order certificates online via the Certificate Ordering Service of the <a href="https://www.gov.uk/browse/births-deaths-marriages/register-offices">General Register Office</a> website. From 6th April 2010, the cost of a certificate obtained this way is £9.25.<br />
  206. You can obtain a GRO reference in several ways:-
  207. <ol><li>Searching microfilm or fiche at a Library or LDS Family History Centre.</li>
  208. <li><a href="https://www.freebmd.org.uk/">FreeBMD</a> is an ongoing project to make the General Register Office (GRO) Indexes freely available online. More volunteers are needed and details of how you can help are available on-site.</li>
  209. <li><a href="https://www.findmypast.co.uk/">findmypast.co.uk</a> (formerly 1837online) - images of the complete BMD indexes from the GRO online. Fee payable</li>
  210. <li>The images are also available on <a href="https://www.ancestry.co.uk/">Ancestry.co.uk</a> for which a subscription provides access to a wide range of other records.</li>
  211. </ol></li>
  212. </ul></li>
  213. <li><strong>Obtaining a certificate for a recent event</strong>
  214. <ul><li>The cost of a certificates issued at the time of registration of a current birth, death or marriage is £3.50 for each copy.</li>
  215. <li>After registration (for instance, the following day) the cost is £7.00, providing the register is still current (within 28 days of the last entry in the register)</li>
  216. <li>After a registration book is complete, 28 days later, the register is deposited with the Superintendent Registrar of the district. Until recently, this was one of the district offices referred to above, but there is now just one district for the whole of Herefordshire, and the place to apply to is the Herefordshire Register Office in Hereford Town Hall. From that point onwards, certificates will cost the same as any 'old' certificate obtained locally - £9.00.</li>

  249. <p>Herefordshire has many Timber-Framed Houses - most noticeable in its so-called "Black and White" Villages.<br />
  250. These buildings may be found dating from the fourteenth century, but often as late as the nineteenth. The timber they were made of was usually oak, but with elm used occasionally for partitioning internally, and floor boarding. An underlying platform, 2 or 3 feet high, built of of stone, is common.<br />
  251. "Pre-fabricated" would be an apt description of their building. The master carpenter would pre-cut all the sections of wood, together with (presumably) all the necessary jointing requirements. The cross frames were then raised into position and linked with the pieces prepared for the side walls. The spaces were then infilled with lath and plaster or daub on wattle. Today's 'black and white' is thought to be a comparatively modern feature - originally the timber would be left untreated, and the infill would be either ochre-coloured or lime washed. <span>(Ref: Sanford, Anne - <em>Old Herefordshire Photographs</em>.
