The History File for October 2017

Thanks to the diary of Henry Prescott born in 1649. Visits to see his friend Gerard Townsend at Christleton Hall. A walk to Christleton in cheerful sweet air. No doubt welcome after the pullets, pork, lobster, beans, bacon, beef, salted whiting, herrings, claret and coffee. Talk about greyhounds at the Glasshouse Inn with the proprietor John Witter with more food and a good tankard. A theatre company production Shakespearean plays. Funeral for the Bishop of Chester and a siting of the Aurora Borealis in the night sky. Father, daughter and servants of a household are bound, silver vessels, silver and gold stolen during a cunning nocturnal theft. A dispute between the Rector of Christleton, Thomas Clopton and Gerard Townsend that has an unfortunate ending. Thanks to the diary there is so much more for you to read here.
