An entry in The Gentleman's magazine, under the heading "Marriages of remarkable Persons" 1799, October 28 states; "Mr. T. Aveling, jun. of Whittlesea to Miss Hotchkin, of Stamford, co. Lincoln." The marriage is supported by an extract on the IGI.

They lived in a tall brick house in the Market, Whittlesey, which in the 1940's was a Post Office. Is now (1996) The National Bank. At the age of 33. (sourced from AVELINGS of WHITTLESEY ISLE of ELY (by J.C.A.SOURCE:A.J.A.))

The marriage of Thomas AVELING & Mary Ann HOTCHKIN appears as an extract on the
IGI as 28 OCT 1799, Saint Mary, Stamford, Lincoln, England

As per the book ?Fenland notes & queries. A quarterly antiquarian journal for the fenland, in the counties of Huntingdon, Cambridge, Lincoln, Northampton, Norfolk, and Suffolk, published in 1891, it states that within the St Mary Church, Whittlesey on the North End of Chancel, there was a momument which reads; (I have a copy)

11 !Birth Place Source 1881 British Census: Aged 56, Address Boley Hill Hse, Rochester,Kent. Occupation Ag Engineer Employing 266 Men & 61 Boys.

Mayor of Rochester, 1868-69
Brought up by his mother and her 2nd husband after his father died when he was 11. Step-father, Rev John d'Urban was said to have ruled him with a bible in one hand and a birch in the other. Slow and dull as a boy "he became very bright when away from his step-father. Married the daughter of the farmer to whom he was apprenticed.

Obituary of Thomas Aveling in "Graphic" Mar. 25th 1882.
Mr Thomas Aveling, the chief of the firm of Aveling and Porter, engineers of Rochester, at the age of 57, was descended from an old Cambridgeshire family, having been at Elm, near Wisbech in 1824. His first occupation was farming, which for some years he followed under Mr. Robert Lake of Milton Chapel, near Canterbury, whose eldest daughter he subsequently married. He was always taking great interest in agricultural machinery. and was first to introduce the use of steam plough into Kent. Soon after he and his father in law began business at St. Thomas's Strood, as construction and repairers of agricultural machinery and proceeded to construct traction engines on the pitch-chain principle, an early patent of Mr. Avelings' which is remarkable for strength and simplicity as compared with those of other designs; and which won for him the 1st prize of the R.A.S. of England in 1860, and many honours from Agricultural Societies in England and abroad.
Mr Aveling was a member of the Institute of Civil Engineers, a Chevalier of the Legion of Honour, and a Knight of the Order of St. Joseph. He filled the office of Mayor of Rochester, and during his year of office was instrumental in effecting many public improvements in the Town. He leaves a widow, a son and four daughters.

The following is an exract from "A Steam Dinosaur "
The world's oldest steam traction engine found buried in an English coal mine
.
This incredible survivor is probably a traction/tram railway locomotive from 1865.

The Historical Background
Every Summer, the English countryside rings to the clamour of ancient steam engines, rescued from oblivion by thousands of dedicated enthusiasts, at countless steam rallies and private railways throughout the land.

The British fascination with steam is understandable - the technology was invented and developed here, and spread from these shores to change the whole world for ever. Today, the 5,000 plus preserved engines in Britain are a source of pride to their operators and delight to almost everyone else. They are also a powerful symbol of British industrial supremacy in the past and an inspiration for the future. Through the spectacle of these great machines, the magic of industry often enters young minds for the first time.

Although mobile steam engines were manufactured from about 1805 onwards, almost all of our preserved engines date from the late 19th and early 20th century. This is because the Victorians themselves did not share our interest in preservation and happily sent almost all of their work for scrap when it was no longer needed. Even the great engineer George Jackson Churchward condemned the last two of Brunel's broad gauge Great Western engines to scrap simply to make space at Swindon. (In fairness, Churchward did try unsuccessfully to find North Star and Iron Duke a museum home.)

The result of all this is that we now have very few engines from early and mid-Victorian times, and almost none in working order. This situation is especially clear in the case of steam road engines, which did not appear in any case until after the Great Exhibition of 1851. Today, the oldest known road engine is the Science Museum's 1870 Aveling & Porter traction engine, which was presented to the Museum by the Road Locomotive Society in 1950.

It was Thomas Aveling who made most of the technical innovations that are incorporated in every 'modern' traction engine and steamroller. Aveling, a Kentish farmer, was dissatisfied with the portable steam engines then used to power farm machinery because the engines had to be hauled from site to site by teams of horses. He set out to make the engines self-moving, and in the process became known as the "Father of the traction engine".

Aveling began manufacture of his own engines at Rochester, Kent, in 1862 and quickly built up a commanding position in the field which his company never really lost. In 1867, Aveling introduced the first production road roller, sending the first example to his agent in Paris. Subsequently, rollers of this type were sent all over the world. Two of them became the first steam rollers in the United States, helping build amongst other projects the roads in Central Park, New York.

Aveling & Porter (later Aveling-Barford) continued to manufacture steam rollers until after the second world war, producing more than any other builder. Many of these rollers remained in service well into the 1960's and today outnumber all other kinds of preserved steam engines. Some people even regard them as commonplace! This is unfair, because all surviving traction engines, road locomotives and steam rollers are more or less based on the Aveling patents and are therefore in reality Aveling designs!

Without question, it was Thomas Aveling's designs which made possible mechanical road transport and created the modern highways which we take so much for granted today. In this respect, Aveling's innovations must rank as some of the most important ever made in the history of the modern world.

31 (Medical):«b»Adrian Stephen«/b» (1883-1948) was a member of the «u»Bloomsbury Group «/u», an author and psychoanalyst, and the brother of «u»Virginia Woolf «/u» and «u»Vanessa Bell «/u». He and his wife became interested in the work of «u»Sigmund Freud «/u», and were among the first British «u»psychoanalysts «/u».
Stephen, educated at «u»Westminster School «/u», was the youngest of four children of «u»Leslie Stephen «/u»; their father's death in 1904 resulted in the four siblings moving to «u»Bloomsbury «/u», and their house there became the nucleus of the Bloomsbury Group.
Among his romantic liaisons was his affair with the artist «u»Duncan Grant «/u», which led to Grant's introduction to, and eventual unusual romance with, Stephen's sister Vanessa Bell. In 1914 Stephen married Karin Costelloe, a philosophy graduate and expert on «u»Bergson «/u». On the introduction of «u»conscription «/u» in 1916 during «u»World War I «/u» Stephen became a «u»conscientious objector «/u», like many other members of the Bloomsbury Group, and, with Costelloe, lived out the remainder of the war working on a farm in Essex.
Following the war they became interested in «u»psychoanalysis «/u», training medically at the request of «u»Ernest Jones «/u» and later with «u»James Glover «/u», and becoming qualified in the late 1920s.
In 1936 Stephen decided to recount in detail the «u»Dreadnought Hoax «/u», in which he had taken part a quarter of a century earlier, completing an account published by Hogarth press.
In «u»World War II «/u» Stephen became so angered by the «u»Nazis «/u»' brutality and «u»anti-semitism «/u» that he abandoned his «u»pacifist «/u» stance of the previous war and volunteered to become an army doctor at the age of 60 in 1942, shortly after his sister Virginia's suicide. He died in 1948.
