too many images?[edit]

This article is a little short and the big infobox on the right makes it a little tough to include all the pictures without making the text turn into a column just a few words wide. I moved some of the pictures around a little and moved one to this page, but if someone has good idea of how to get all the pictures in there without it making the page look bad on small screens, that would be great. Otherwise we might want to try to narrow down the picture selection to one or two representative photos. Image is below. Jessamyn (talk) 23:19, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

Old Mill, Blacksmith Shop & Mill Bridge

It was an intermediate version I'm still working on the text. I thought the page looked fine on 1024 wide windows, but maybe its a bad assumption that people will all view it that big. I'll rearrage and chuck the extra images down the bottom again for now... --Mickmaguire 13:20, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

That sounds great. I live nearby Tunbridge and I know that most of the libraries in this area still have their screens set at 800x600, so I always set that as my baseline minimum. The work you've been doing on the page and a lot of the other Vermont pages really looks good. Jessamyn (talk) 13:24, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Hey thanks! I live in the white house in this picture! :O) I rearranged the page a bit - I'm working on pulling some more useful info in so hopefully it wont look too overloaded with pictures when the text is expanded. I would like to get a few more pics in but it wouldn't look right if I did that without extra text (I think) --Mickmaguire 13:30, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Origin of Name[edit]

Hi people of Tunbridge, Vermont.

Your reference to Tunbridge Vermont being named after the Royal Borough of Tunbridge Wells is in my opnion wrong. Tunbridge Wells did not exist as a town in its own right in the 18th century (it was simply the "Wells at Tunbridge". It was still a part of the ancient parish of "Tunbridge" (renamed Tonbridge in the 19th century) See Tonbridge. I am only pointing out the distinct possibilty and am very happy to leave it to you to chose. User:colin213 —Preceding comment was added at 15:31, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

That's not actually what the article says. What is says is "De Zuylstein's secondary title is derived from the old "royal borough" of Tunbridge Wells (sometimes Royal Tunbridge Wells) in England". There may be a slight error in that statement based on the Wells part of the name but De Zuylstein was certainly titled after Tunbridge in the UK. Mickmaguire (talk) 21:00, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

I have actually looked into the history of the Viscount of Tunbridge. the first Viscount lived at Somerhill in Tonbridge which is probably why he took the title of the town when made a viscount user:colin213. —Preceding comment was added at 23:07, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
