I query the statement that Wem is birthplace of comedian Greg Davies if his wikipedia biography asserts he was born at St Asaph, Wales before his parents moved into Wem. Which is correct, person in possession of best facts please come forward with citation if any.Cloptonson (talk) 20:49, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
It is misleading to claim the sweet pea was "first born in Wem" when Eckford's (sketchy) wiki article mentions he was working on cultivating sweet peas as early as 1879 before he came to Wem, and the sweet pea must have existed as a species before Eckford's time. It would be more correct to state, as I will, that Wem is the first place it was commercially cultivated. The Eckford Sweet Pea was a variety produced from earlier strains.Cloptonson (talk) 19:34, 11 June 2012 (UTC)
I have removed an article link given to the Richard Gough (the writer of the 'History of Myddle') in this article because the link connects him with another Richard Gough, also an antiquary, who lived after the lifetime of the former (who died in 1723 but was unpublished until the 19th century).Cloptonson (talk) 19:35, 1 August 2013 (UTC)
