Join us on Monday 4th June for a free study day dedicated to the Pentrich Revolution, which celebrated its bicentenary last year. The event is here at the record office and hosted by the Pentrich & South Wingfield Revolution Group.
Here’s what you can expect on the day:
- A talk by Michael Parkin giving an overview and posing some unanswered questions that could provide suitable research topics
- A genealogy session led by Sylvia Mason who has compiled the family trees of the Pentrich Rebels (potentially with an input from descendants, the group’s Chairman John Hardwick)
- An illustrated talk ‘Transported for Treason’ dealing with the fate of the 14 men who were transported to penal colonies and the families they left behind
- Some personal time for participants to look through archive material
The Study Day runs from 10am to 3pm. For more information contact Patrick Cook, of the Pentrich & South Wingfield Revolution Group, at email@example.com or call 07931 198707.
