We are pleased to inform you that one of our members, John Buckell, has recently published a book on the village of Weston Favell during the First World War. Copies are available from Northamptonshire Libraries and Northampton Museum and Art Gallery. John will be giving a talk about his book at Weston Favell Library on Sunday 10 March at 2.00 p.m.
We regret that it has been necessary to postpone the meeting on Thursday 14th. If it proves possible to reschedule Dr Dyndor’s talk to another date details will be posted here.
The next lecture will take place on Thursday 14th February at The University of Northampton. Our speaker will be our own secretary Dr Zoe Dyndor, discussing “Widows, Wives and Witnesses: Women in 18th Century Elections in Northampton”. This talk expands on her 2011 article published in ‘Parliamentary History’ and will examine how all women – from the elite Lady Spencer to the poor Widow Dean – were able to participate in, and influence, parliamentary elections. We look forward to seeing you there.
