Our talk on 31st May by Ken Griffin on “Crime and Punishment in Hertfordshire” was attended by only 21 people but it caused a very lively discussion. Ken mainly give details of his vast archive of convicts sent abroad, not only to Australia but also to the USA and Gibraltar.
The next general meeting will be on 28th June in the Parish Hall at 10 am.
Meanwhile enjoy this interesting picture of the Sawbridgeworth alms houses which were situated in Great St. Mary’s Church Yard. The picture comes from the vast archive of local photographs given to us by Wally Wright, our president
