The Arundells of Wardour: Six Centuries of a Wiltshire Family — Barry Williamson
April 7 at 7:30 pm£3 – £5
Barry Williamson, a history teacher who grew up in a village on the edge of the Wardour estate, will tell us of the turbulent history of this family.
Tudor opulence and military catastrophe in the Civil War were followed by the building of a huge Georgian mansion next to the old castle and a spectacular bankruptcy. The last Lord Arundell died in 1944 on his return from German prison camps.
Barry has subtitled his talk “Chasing Red Herrings”. The process of research involved many diversions!
