(Alde Valley Suffolk Family History Group)

 

2.30pm January Meeting at Snape Village Hall

The January meeting of the Alde Valley Suffolk Family History Group will be an illustrated talk by Diana Hughes to demonstrate the fascinating insight into the history of early modern Aldeburgh, gained from the Borough’s accounts. We shall meet the Councillors and the problems they had to deal with. There were attacks on the coast and cannon on the beach; punishments could be cruel; and seven local women were tried and hanged for witches. And all in the town that we know so well today.

Since retiring from a career in teaching Diana Hughes has furthered her interest in local history, firstly with the National Trust on Dunwich Heath and then with the Aldeburgh Museum. Presently she is working to finish a transcription of the Aldeburgh Chamberlains’ Accounts (1566–1590 & 1625–1649), and at the same time helping to plan a new display for a revitalised Aldeburgh Museum.

Visitors welcome. Admission: members £1, visitors £3, incl tea/coffee.

 

Entrance is not at the front of the church, but on the left hand side as you face the building. Parking is free in the Co-op/Solar car park which adjoins it, but you must sign your vehicle in at the tills in the supermarket or face a charge of £100.
