A Farm Journal ~ from the 16th to the 30th September 1868

My great great great uncle John Bayliff Bowman lived at Summer Hill, near Monyash in the County of Derby.
The Bowman family, who were Quakers, had three farms, One Ash Grange [which John Bayliff Bowman often referred to as O.A.], Cales and Summer Hill [which he usually referred to as S.Hill or S.H.]

4 - 16 Began pie in Mossfield Jesse paring fallows

6 - 18  Dull & cold W.E. shower in even[in]g - we sadly want warm showers - short of water at S.H. have to lead from Cales - sold Hully of Ashford 18 fat wether lambs off rape 24/-each

7 - 19 to 2 - 21 Few Showers very agreeable

3 - 22 Showery

4 - 23 Fine W.N. dipped ewe lambs & thraves

5 - 24 Fine morn[in]g shower aft[ernoo]n Willies's Birthday lead[in]g Lime onto Ridge Piece on Pared & harrow[e]d ground

6 Ditto

2 - 28 Showery spread Lime in Ridge Piece

3 - 29 Fine lead[in]g manure at Cales

4 - 30 Ditto 

The reference to 'Willie's Birthday' was to his son William's 1st Birthday. I wonder if they did anything special for him ... or with him.


  1. It's nice that Willie was mentioned. So often men do not record birthdays in their journals.

    1. John Bayliff Bowman certainly didn't go into great detail about very much so it is good he remembered his son's first birthday.
