Charity No. 1020311The Wray Family of GlentworthTalk by Adrian Gray at The CollectionSaturday 23rd November 2019 at 2 pmThe Wrays of Glentworth: Radical Religion in Tudor and Stuart England. Lord Chief Justice Sir Christopher Wray’s memorial at Glentworth is one of the treasures of Lincolnshire, but he and his wife also founded a family that were supporters of radical religion across the country for fifty years. This is a story of rich and clever people, using their wealth to promote bright young men into key places – men like John Smyth, the founder of the Baptists – and their association with people like the Mayflower Pilgrims.The cost will be £8 per member and £10 for non-members. Please send your cheque (made payable to FLMAG), with the attached slip to Hugh Cooke, 9 Francis Hill Court, Church Lane, Lincoln LN2 1QJThe Colleyweston SlatersTalk by Nigel Smith at The CollectionSaturday 12th October 2019 at 2 pmNigel Smith is the son of Claude Smith whose building firm reroofed the Guildhall in London in Colleyweston slates.
