    Transcription from The General Evening Post: "South Sea Old Annuities 87 1 half Ditto New 88 Ditto 1751 87 3-8ths Three Percent." If the unit of currency is pounds sterling, then 87 1/2 pounds in 1761 = 11,100 pounds in 2014. In American dollars 11,100 pounds = $17,800.00. In simple interest 3% of $17,800.00 = $534.00.

  8. Victuallers' Returns, London Metropolitan Archives were searched for John Taber, Victualler, Farringdon Without Ward (CLA/047/LR//03/1754/025 - CLA/047/LR/03/1766/001/0258.) None were found. "Unfortunately, the records appear to be more incomplete as time progresses. Although there are complete lists of Victuallers in St Sepulchre's in Farringdon Without in 1754 and 1755, these do not exist in the later files. The records that survive in the later files are petitions for licence and licence returns of the Alderman of various Wards- either they did not reissue the licences each year, or the records of these haven't survived. As regards the Victuallers records we hold, in my opinion it is more likely that the records are incomplete for one reason or another than it is that your ancestor operated without a licence. There seems to be a large variance between the amount and type of records kept from year to year which would imply that not everything has survived. For example, in some years there are lists of each Licenced Victualler in each district, sometimes there are only lists of the monies owed to each Alderman of each ward. Furthermore the numbers of licences granted in each year that exist in the records varies wildly across each year. The Old Bailey was the chief criminal court of the City and the Middlesex area at the time, and so it would seem unlikely to me that a fact recorded in that Court would be unknown to the City, though of course this is before the advanced information exchanges that we have now. My colleague, who has more knowledge of how the City operated at the time, has told me that the City would not have knowingly let a victualler go unlicensed." Opinion of the LMA May 16, 2014
