An absorbing account of nine generations of a Midland family, this carefully researched book by Peter Mimms traces the history of the family members from the time of the Civil War to the 1930's. The family's story is reconstructed from Parish maps and registers, Poor Law records, Parliamentary papers, Board school logs and family reminiscences. This book is illustrated with twenty specially commissioned line drawings by Audrey Appleby which include Rick burning, a public execution, The Thames on fire and a Bermondsey corner shop - all of which give an indication of the wide ranging topics covered in the book.
