The subject for the meeting on April 24 is ‘Prestbury Manor Court Rolls’.  There are over a hundred rolls dating back to the 14th century held at Gloucestershire Archives.  All except those from 1733 to 1871 are in Latin!  This presentation by Norman Baker will cover the history of the Rolls and some of the information gained from the entries from 1733.  The accounts shed light on the lives of the villagers, village ways, customs and places.

The presentation will be followed by tea & coffee and the launch of out new book Prestbury Past & Present : Volume 2. There will be an opportunity to chat to the author after his talk and have your copy signed.
