April Meeting

The Private Life of
Oliver Cromwell

Stuart Orme

Who was Oliver Cromwell? Soldier, Statesman, Lord Protector?
This talk looks at Cromwell as a person, his family and explodes some of the myths about him, focusing a little less on the traditional approach of his career as a soldier and politician, and allows the audience to uncover some of the controversies about his life and see him “warts and all”.

March Meeting

The Russell family
of Thornaugh

Peter Morrell

The story begins in 1505 when 19 year old John Russell rescued the Spanish Princess Joan the Mad and her husband Phillip the Handsome from a near shipwreck. Subsequently presented at the court of Henry the seventh, he became the best friend of the Kng’s son , who later as Henry the eighth ennobled Russell and thus began the dynasty of the Dukedom of Bedford.
An amazing romp through the 16th century to the present day including the civil war and the draining of the fens.
