Thanks for considering me your friend, Russ.
I wonder if there is any truth in the family legend that my distant relative Alfred Peck Stevens aka Alfred Glanville Vance aka The Great Vance, played a William Temlett Snr. zither-banjo shortly before his death on stage at The Sun Music Hall in 1888?
Black Jake of Norwich.
Wikipedia : Vance suffered from heart disease, and died on 26 December 1888, at the age of about 49, while performing on the stage of the Sun Music Hall, Knightsbridge. He is buried in Nunhead Cemetery, although his headstone no longer exists.
