Event Name

Date

Royal shenanigans and courtesans

Mike Rendell writes, speaks and blogs on all things Georgian, and here he lifts the lid on murder, rape, incest and false imprisonment in the context of the Prince Regent and his dissolute family. The leading sex workers of Georgian times enjoyed a celebrity status which is nowadays hard to credit. Prepare to be scandalised.

Was your ancestor a criminal?

Dr Colin Chapman will describe the offences that were regarded as crimes in the 18th and 19th centuries in Britain, and the severe punishments that followed conviction. He will then ask: “Was your ancestor a criminal?” Dr Chapman has published and lectured extensively, founded five county family history societies, and is currently president of three, patron of a fourth, a vice-president of the Society of Genealogists and a life vice-president of the Federation of Family History Societies. He compiled the Chapman County Code for British Isles counties that formed the basis of a British and later an international standard.
