Forthcoming Meetings

October 19 2016

Les Mitchinson - Census Substitutes
Les Mitchinson will return to speak on “Census Substitutes”. Where do you go when you are back beyond 1841, the first full national census? There is in fact a wide variety of sources, including directories & numerous lists - but where can you find them? Here's the chance to learn more of your ancestors as you push back into the earlier years when standard details are hazy.

November 16

Alan Crosby - Sex & Sin in early 18C Surrey
Alan Crosby, one of Britain's leading local historians, will speak on “Sex & Sin in early 18C Surrey.” Church courts dealt with a wide range of cases, including the salacious & the scathing. Were your ancestors involved? Dare you come to find out?

Derek Morris - London’s Sailortown in the early 19C
2pm. Derek Morris will speak on “London’s Sailortown in the early 19C”. Ships were built, equipped & furnished in vast numbers, for war & for world wide trade. East of the Tower many types of occupations were carried out, & it was quite unlike the rest of the capital. Colourful characters abounded from around the globe, & a good living could be made. This fascinating talk will expand your impressions of the old East London, & those who spent their lives neat the Thames river bank.
