Our next meeting will take place on Monday, 20th January 2020.
The Wars of the Roses Anthony Wagg
This talk will focus on our local lad, Warwick the Kingmaker, who twice had King Edward IV in his grasp, and twice let him live. Adderbury historian Anthony Wagg asks why.
- There are still copies available of the Association’s latest publication, In It Together, by Barry Davis. This is a detailed and informative study of how the village has coped with warfare throughout the centuries, giving equal importance to those who went off to fight and those who took important supporting roles at home. An absorbing gift for anyone with an interest in the history of Adderbury. Copies can be obtained either from Adderbury Library at a reduced cost of £10 (proceeds to Friends of the Library) or from the Association (see Contact Us above). Price £15, plus £3 postage and packing if applicable.
- The Association’s meetings normally take place in the Adderbury Methodist Church School Room, Chapel Lane, Adderbury, at 7.15 p.m. for 7.30 p.m. New members are always very welcome. The annual subscription is £12.50 and the subscription year begins in January. Visitors are welcome (cost £2.50).
- There is a new entry in our Historical Miscellany section which has been sent to us by a New Zealand researcher, Brenda Kirkham. It tells the story of Sarah and Thomas Joines of Adderbury, who emigrated to New Zealand on the Carisbrooke Castle in 1874.
