"hard in a way" for Marguerite Harbert...[edit]

...to be rich.Zigzig20s (talk) 01:38, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

Being rich might be overrated, but it must surely beat being poor. Edwardx (talk) 20:04, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

Sources[edit]

I have had the great misfortune to discover some very exhaustive sources in the areas in which I have been editing. Philafrenzy (talk) 23:31, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

Yes, life is often simpler if one just just sticks to a basic web search using a certain well-known search engine. Been filling in some DOBs and middle names with Companies House beta search. Plus just fixing vandalism and well-intentioned edits to articles I started or am watching creates enough editing, especially when there is real work to do. Edwardx (talk) 23:39, 11 August 2015 (UTC)
I have some information on the Bevans too. Incidentally, I wonder if you noticed that the moto of Christ Church, Cockfosters is "Deeper, Closer, Further"? Perhaps it's just me ... Philafrenzy (talk) 23:49, 11 August 2015 (UTC)
Reminds me of the old Max Miller joke from the war (before my time too). A girl, sitting on a man's lap in a packed train and reaching a blacked-out station, asks: "Is this Cockfosters?", to which he replies, "I don't know, lady, does it matter?" Edwardx (talk) 00:03, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
Saw an excellent analysis of Miller's comedy style on one of those heroes of comedy programmes that traced it back to his canvassing for punters for a show at the seaside. Philafrenzy (talk) 00:19, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
And showing the connections and influences is one of our important roles here on WP. Edwardx (talk) 09:42, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
Hence my discussion of the comedy style of British comedians and their ill fitting demob suits, sadly truncated by lack of reliable sources. I was hoping to work in Tommy Cooper somewhere. Philafrenzy (talk) 12:57, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Richard Bevan[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Richard Bevan requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. Samuel Tarling (talk) 10:11, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

August 2015[edit]

Warning icon Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to remove speedy deletion notices from pages you created yourself, as you did at Richard Bevan, you may be blocked from editing. Even if Richard Bevan is notable, please do not remove speedy tags from your own articles. Thank you! Samuel Tarling (talk) 10:20, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

"Disruptive editing is a pattern of editing that may extend over a long time or many articles". Where is the pattern please? And where in WP policy does it state that I can't remove a speedy tag? Edwardx (talk) 10:23, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
"The creator of a page may not remove a speedy deletion tag from it. Only an editor who is not the creator of a page may do so. A creator who disagrees with the speedy deletion should instead click on the Contest this speedy deletion button which appears inside of the speedy deletion tag." as clearly explained at WP:SPEEDY. Samuel Tarling (talk) 10:26, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
You've not answered my first question. In any event, WP:SPEEDY was not the best way to deal with any issues you might have had. Edwardx (talk) 13:15, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

I'm very sorry to have to say this, but from your actions it seems reasonable to infer that you're more interested in winning an argument than trying to improve an encyclopaedia. See WP:POINT. Edwardx (talk) 13:11, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

Little Grove[edit]

Was on Cat Hill with an estate on which you undoubtedly walked and a garden by Capability Brown. Philafrenzy (talk) 21:38, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

Impressive research. And did my feet in ancient time... Edwardx (talk) 22:48, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
Almost forgotten - until now. A spin off from Hadley articles. I don't think the current architecture of East Barnet is an improvement. Philafrenzy (talk) 23:30, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

Bevan[edit]

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Bevan_family_grave_at_Christ_Church,_Cockfosters includes all four sides of the grave. The inscriptions are just about legible. Philafrenzy (talk) 11:15, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

I shall get back to the Bevans very soon and see what info and article usage can be extracted from those extra images. I'm temporarily distracted by pubs, pubcos and private equity... Edwardx (talk) 18:34, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Cooper[edit]

Not found anything you probably haven't already seen. There is this for new ideas: http://www.primeresi.com/es-power-1000-london-propertys-most-influential/22074/ Philafrenzy (talk) 10:17, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. Funnily enough I found that yesterday too. It's already led to Pernilla Ohrstedt. Always on the look out for notable women to try to do my bit for the WP gender gap. Edwardx (talk) 10:37, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
I know what a committed feminist you are. Philafrenzy (talk) 11:40, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Pubs[edit]

I have started pubs by borough. Philafrenzy (talk) 21:01, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

Good call. "Pubs in London" was getting rather large. Edwardx (talk) 10:58, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
  • There's some recent listings which may help. I didn't spot any places that I'm especially interested in and so don't expect to be doing much with this myself. Andrew D. (talk) 13:59, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Every one of those 21 newly-listed pubs now has an article. Let them try to knock any of those down! Edwardx (talk) 21:31, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

Edible flowers[edit]

Edible flowers?Zigzig20s (talk) 21:15, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

Duly reminded. But I've lots of new articles to start after my visit to Petersham yesterday. Edwardx (talk) 11:00, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
I have been thinking of going for walks in specific neighbourhoods and taking pictures of specific historic buildings, etc., instead of spending all my time in Hyde Park...but it doesn't help that no one has created a list of all listed buildings in central London.Zigzig20s (talk) 11:39, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
What is there to see in Petersham?Zigzig20s (talk) 11:40, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
Go to Historic England Map Search, enter a postcode, zoom in. What I sometimes do is print out a map or two, then highlight what needs to be photographed and/or have an article created. And no one is stopping you from creating such a list... As for Petersham, enter TW10 7AD and zoom in. Or stalk my contributions over the next few days! And next door Richmond around the green and by the river, or Richmond Park is always a good day out. Edwardx (talk) 12:59, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
Oh yes. I need to go back to the Ham Polo Club in Richmond...

Cooper[edit]

Cooper's mother's maiden name was Carlton. Hilary Carlton and Allen Cooper married in Willesden district in 1964. A Marcus S. Cooper married Katie A. Lucas in Westminster district in 1998. Whether these are the right Coopers I couldn't say. I saw no marriage announcements in The Times or The Telegraph. Philafrenzy (talk) 23:57, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

I've struggled to find anything on the internet about his origins, education or personal life. Even with those names, nothing! Edwardx (talk) 00:25, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
Given the north London connection and the Willesden reference, I suggest that you try Jewish newspapers. Philafrenzy (talk) 10:52, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
According to their Annual Review 2012-12, page 60, "Katie & Marcus Cooper" are patrons of Jewish Care. Marcus S Cooper and Katie A Cooper at the same address in St John's Wood, and St John's Wood is where he has his offices. I'm confident that you're right, but it's not really enough for a BLP. Edwardx (talk) 18:42, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
I agree. There is also a property connection to Beno Salem, who is connected to Freddy Salem. Small world as you say. I suspect that Cooper is the son of Jewish migrants to this country and may even have been educated abroad, but that is pure speculation. It will all come out when he gives an interview some time. Philafrenzy (talk) 22:23, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
Billionaires love to work together, but they hate unions. Just found this - The secretive London family at war over its millions - in the Standard a week ago. Looks like we've more editing to do. Edwardx (talk) 12:57, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
Yes, I had that in my pile of clippings. Philafrenzy (talk) 13:06, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
Hard to keep up, isn't it? Amusing how the family feud could lead to trouble with the taxman. Anyway, I've added a bit to Freddy. I think Mark Salem of Mount Capital is his son, but can't find anything definite. The feud should hopefully genearte more WP:RS stuff. Edwardx (talk) 13:17, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
