Tony Hadland’s talk tomorrow evening at Exeter Hall, Kidlington, OX5 1AB is titled – “The Duke and the Miner’s Daughter – the fascinating truth behind a Forest of Dean family myth”. Family tradition said that Tony Hadland’s great-grandfather, Thomas Young, was the illegitimate son of the Duke of Raglan. Thomas’s mother was the teenage daughter of a miner in the Forest of Dean. Using techniques anybody can employ, Tony discovered that the truth was even more interesting than the legend.
The picture is of Tony’s great-great-grandmother, Elizabeth Young, the subject of the talk.
All are welcome – the venue is open from 7:15pm.
