S is for Sophia

This month I am participating in the A-Z Blogging Challenge where I will endeavour to post on this blog each day. It’s my first attempt at the challenge, I hope that I have the stamina to complete it.

I will be going through the Curry forenames in my surname study database from A-Z and,  as per the event schedule, will share some of the articles I have found on Trove relating to Currys. For problem letters like X and Q I may  resort to Google.


S is also for short as this post will be. I’m sharing a sad story of Sophia Curry from 1857.

    Well, seeing as my name starts with S, I came to visit just in time.
    Interesting post, thank you — something that appears to be an affidavit form 1857.
    The length of the post was just perfect given the busy A-Z Challenge month.
    Enjoy the rest of the A to Z.

    You had the stamina…well done! My reading stamina got waylaid by my interstate gallivanting. I thought this was an interesting story. Am I correct that the penalty went against the dog owner, which seems odd given the dog was on a short lead.
