Forest of Galtres Society

The Diary of William Lockwood of Easingwold 1796 – 1797

“Ye dear Object of my Affections”

As a young man articled to his father, an attorney in Easingwold, William recounts daily activities, putting a personal gloss on events, such as the 1796 election meeting for the County Members. His visits to church, his preference for sweetened wine and oranges, his frequent journeys on foot and on horseback, and the fascinating record exhibited by his personal financial accounts combine to give an insight, through the interpreted transcription of the handwritten text, into an earlier way of life. William’s young lady, Jane, the “Object” of the title, also occupies his time and thoughts and he marries her some years later.

Helen Kirk is Honorary Secretary of the Forest of Galtres Society which is publishing this transcript. She has discovered many eminent predecessors and successors in the family lineage, and the story of William Lockwood is thus filled out. Whilst offering a charming glimpse of local life at the end of the eighteenth century, it extends the story to the present day.

The book has XI + 117 pages, 34 illustrations and 4 maps. Size 21cm x 15cm.

ISBN 0 9527702 0 2 (Limp cover)

E Ink expansion ready to go in 2013

E Ink, the provider of technology behind the Kindle and other eReaders, is almost ready to move into a renovated property on Technology Park Drive in Billerica, Mass.

“With the kind of growth we have experienced so far and our expectations for future growth, we have run out of room in Cambridge,” Sriram Peruvemba, the company’s chief marketing officer, said in an email. “We looked at properties in Cambridge and other cities nearby and settled on the facility in cheap jerseys Billerica which give us the ability to have our entire research and development group as well as our labs, pilot facility, test chambers all under the same roof.”

The move from Cambridge to the 140,000 square foot space in Billerica will result in greater collaboration among E Ink’s different technical groups, Peruvemba said. After expanding to a second and then a third building in Cambridge, the company ran out wholesale jerseys of room. So the company leased the Billerica plant to put its research and development team under one roof. The labs there are under construction, and Peruvemba says the move from Cambridge will take place in phases, starting in mid 2013 and continuing over the following 12 to 18 months.

Peruvemba said E Ink has enjoyed strong growth in revenue and in its Massachusetts work force since late 2009 when it was cheap jerseys from china acquired by cheap nfl jerseys china Prime View International. Today, the firm employs about 250 people in the Bay State in Cambridge and South Hadley, about twice the number at the time of Prime View sale. Peruvemba said the company was collecting $100 million a month in revenue in 2011. He didn’t have the 2012 revenue figure available. But he says E Ink’s revenue for 2012 would be less than 2011, although still significantly more than in any previous year.Articles Connexes:
