Introduction to The Wychwoods Local History Society Journal No 31
In volume number 31 we continue our occasional series on Nonconformists in the Wychwoods, with Sandy Bradshaw’s story of the Quakers in Milton, whose former Meeting is now her house.
Simon Draper, Assistant Editor of the Victoria County History for Oxfordshire, who is working on the history of the Wychwood villages, analyses the versions of the mysterious injury and death of Thomas Sinden, butler to Sir John Reade of Shipton Court, in an attempt to establish the truth of this episode.
Wendy Pearse has been investigating villagers of Ascott who emigrated to Australia in search of work, some successfully, others less so.
The volume continues on a happier note with the history of the Women’s Institute in the three villages, coordinated by Alan Vickers with the help of many women who were and are members.
We finish with Michael Davies’s account of the Ralph Mann Archive at Kingham, which will be a research resource for interested students of all ages for many years to come.
The Editor is most grateful to all thecontributors and to Alan Vickers for his work on the illustrations.
