Amongst the Archives

This section could not have been achieved without help from Penny Close who has helped us to explore her carefully researched archives of Kirtling and Upend history. Our trawl among the historical archives has uncovered some real gems that will interest historians. Read for example, the 1696 inventory of the goods and chattels of one John French who lived in Upend, which gives an insight into the way of life of village people at the time.
