Topics in this month's books include: the industrial past of London and how you can uncover your ancestors who were part of it; the inspiring story of Mabel Lucie Attwell, who faced the challenges of the Second World War with resilience and humour; the mysterious and diverse ways that people have dealt with death and dying across cultures and times; and how to use death records to discover more about your family history.
Aplace both of strangers and regulars, the local alehouse be a melting pot of trades and people from all walks of life. Here thee will find labourers, drovers, tinkers, carriers, bakers, hawkers, shipwrights, itinerant weavers, butchers, colliers, shepherds, foreigners, perhaps men at arms or even the local clergyman. In these times there are many beggars tramping the highways and alehouses are also places where such people go to seek work. While rare, ’tis not unknown for a gentleman to enjoy the charms of an alehouse too. The Dover magistrate John Godwin, for instance, be a wellknown fan of local tippling houses.
