The Bell & The Catherine Wheel

7th May, 2013 Barbara Allison
Barbara Allison holds a Diploma in Local History and learned to read original documents through a palaeography course run in Burford, aimed at volunteers to work for the VCH study of the town. After transcribing extensive probate material there, the ‘Burford Group’ under Barbara’s leadership used it’s by now well honed skills to working on Henley wills & inventories. They transcribed material from 1500 – 1710. Barbara has used this large body of information on Henley residents to pull together much of interest on 4 of its major inns. These provided the material for an article in Oxoniensia 2011. Barbara will be sharing with us what the documents show about life at the ‘Catherine Wheel’ and ‘The Bell’.
