In Bristol Fashion
In Bristol Fashion is the first of a two-volume fictionalized biography of the Lewis', the Hooper's and their extended families. Set in Glamorgan, Wales and Bristol, England, the sharp scent of the Celtic Sea seeps into the saga of smugglers, sailors and high sea adventures during the tumultuous years of Victoria's reign. Faced with situations very similar to those of our current times: ill-conceived foreign wars, economic depressions, radical changes in life styles, "the man in the street" and how he copes, is a theme that runs throughout the book.

Bloodshed on Her Birthday 1846
Sunday 1 November 1846 was Louisa Ferris's twenty-ninth birthday. It is doubtful we shall ever know how the day began but the ending guaranteed that life for her family would never be the same again. Louisa, a small, dainty, rather pale woman, with light auburn hair, had married at 16 and had given birth to three children, one of whom had died before the dreadful events in November 1846. She and her husband, who worked as a carrier, had separated the previous year after long-standing domestic disagreements - none, apparently, precipitated by any wrongdoing on the part of Louisa. Her husband had gone to live near Chepstow. It was rumoured he owned property there.
Louisa continued to live in the Lawrence Hill area but her mother who was married to a police sergeant at Trinity Road police station and was, in fact, the housekeeper there, had concerns regarding her daughter's financial security so a house was found for her in Lion Street, Easton where there were enough rooms for her to have lodgers thus bolstering her income. The house comprised two bedrooms, a front and back parlour and a kitchen.There were, it seems, four lodgers in the house, William Stone, William Ferris, Elizabeth Jones and Patrick White, a policeman who had lodged at her previous address. Might he, perhaps, have been recommended by Louisa's stepfather, Sergeant Franklyn?
The Bristol Mercury announced, after reporting the subsequent inquest, that there 'are circumstances in the history' and 'particularly in relation to her connexion with White' which made Louisa 'to some extent, an object of commiseration'. It was said that he had been acquainted with her for a long time and had made 'overtures of an improper nature which she more than once rejected'. He, apparently, 'accomplished her ruin by means of drugged liqueurs' - clearly a forerunner of Rohypnol. The affair continued (with or without the doctored drinks is not specified) and soon the inevitable happened, Louisa became pregnant. Rather than risk the scandal the smoothtongued Irishman persuaded her to procure an abortion.
This, then, was the background to the tragedy which was to unfold on that Sunday afternoon.
Louisa's brother, James Edwards, decided to pay her a visit. She had been pestering him for ages to come and see her so what made him decide to call in on that fateful day is anybody's guess. It was not that he lived a great distance away for he gave his address as 3 Hookey's Court, Rosemary Street from whence he could have walked at a brisk pace in 20 minutes. In point of fact, though, he would not have needed to walk as he was a fly-driver (a fly being a lightweight, two-wheeled, horse-drawn vehicle). It was in this that he arrived that afternoon with a young friend called Charles Sainsbury. Charles lived with his father, a publican, in Prince Street. James had met Charles by chance that day on the Wells Road after dropping off a fare in Knowle. Charles, who was 18, wanted to visit a pal in 'Thistle Street' by which he must have meant Thrissell Street. James gave him a lift there but the friend proved elusive so he was persuaded to accompany Jim to his sister's new residence.
When they knocked on the door they could get no reply but a neighbour called out that the children were round the back playing in the garden. Jim left Charles by the front door, swiftly returning and the door was then opened by Louisa Ferris who invited them to step into the house. It is at this juncture that memories of the witnesses began to conflict.
Charles Sainsbury stated that they had arrived at Lion Street at about 4 o'clock and that his friend's sister was in the downstairs back room. At that time the only people present were himself, James Edwards, Mrs Ferris and a young woman. They all sat down and about a couple of minutes later the policeman came downstairs and sat in an armchair by the fireplace with his back to the window. He sent the young woman out for a quart of beer and they all had a drink. He noted that Mrs Ferris had no conversation with the policeman but confined her remarks to her brother. They were discussing family matters. Charles talked with the policeman. He said at this time the policeman wore no coat, waistcoat or neckerchief and his braces were 'hanging down behind him'. He wore no shoes but fetched himself some slippers to put on.
After about an hour, according to Charles, Mrs Ferris went into the back-kitchen then swiftly returned to stand behind White, her right arm round his right shoulder as though she was whispering to him. Charles meanwhile was deep in conversation with Jim. He became aware of a groaning sound and saw the policeman rise from the chair and take a few steps forward. He realised White was bleeding and heard Jim say 'Louisa, my God, what have you done?'.
Louisa moved her chair a little way back towards the kitchen a
Overdressed in Bristol fashion
Henry Tudor found Bristol girls shipshape and Bristol fashion.. . in fact rather too fashionable for a city claiming it was down on its luck. Henry, who had recendy defeated Richard III at Bosworth Field and been crowned as Henry VII, founder of the Tudor dynasty, first came to Bristol as King in 1486.
Henry, a notoriously money-minded man, was on his travels in an effort to squeeze as much cash as he could from his subjects. Bristol was well prepared for his visit. The city’s merchants told him tale after tale of Bristol’s appalling financial state. The citizens were in no position to hand out more than a pittance to the Royal coffers, they wailed.
The disappointed monarch was suspicious. On his return a few years later those same merchants and their families entertained his Majesty as royally as they could - too royally for the King to be fooled any longer into believing that Bristol was broke. The food was excellent, the wines wonderful and he noted with delight the good looks, the rich clothes and the sparkling jewels of the Bristol beauties he met.
He announced that Bristol corporation had to stump up ?500 to the crown on the spot
and that every Bristolian worth ?200 or more had to pay a levy of ?1. When the astonished citizens heard his verdict and asked why this sudden sting, the cheerful monarch replied that he had seen that Bristol could well afford the tax hike ‘because men’s wives went so sumptuously apparelled.’

Black barbers, reflected a freed slave who barbered in antebellum St. Louis, may have been "the only men in their community who enjoyed, at all times, the privilege of free speech." The reason, of course, lay in their temporary—but absolute—power over a client. With a flick of the wrist, 19th-century black barbers could have slit the throats of the white men they shaved. In Knights of the Razor, Douglas Walter Bristol, Jr., explores this extraordinary relationship in the largely untold story of African American barbers, North and South, from the American Revolution to the First World War.
Besides establishing the modern-day barbershop, these barbers used their skilled trade to navigate the many pitfalls that racism created for ambitious black men. They dominated an upscale market that catered to prosperous white men. At the same time, their respect for labor itself preserved their ties to the black community. Successful barbers assumed leadership roles in their localities, helping to form a black middle class despite pervasive racial segregation. They advocated economic independence from whites and founded insurance companies that became some of the largest black-owned corporations.
Bristol engagingly narrates this story of skilled blacks and elite whites. More broadly, he offers a thoughtful study of the nuances of race relations and the ingenuity of black enterprise. Knights of the Razor tackles a rich and tangled subject.
