The Rectors of Hemingford Abbots – by Dr Charles Beresford and Prof David Yeandle
Two of our most prominent members, Charles Beresford and David Yeandle will talk to us about the Rectors and other clergy of the Parish of St Margaret of Antioch, Hemingford Abbots. Research into this very interesting parish has been a long term project for both Charles and David and in 2021 they were successfully awarded a Goodliff Grant to help with the publication of their book earlier this year. The church was a substantial benefice and the resident clergy turned out to be a interesting group. Charles and David have cast their net widely for their research, so it will be of interest to anyone contemplating something similar for their own parich as well as for the history of the locality itself.
The talk will be given in the setting of this wonderful Parish Church rather than our normal venue.
