June 2012 Archives

Event: "Money, Class & Wealth: Rescuing Forgotten Lives"
Tudor Revels Study Day, Sunday 10 June 2012, 11am-4pm The Dolphin Hotel, High Street, Southampton

Using original archive material: written documents, material remains and portraiture, we discuss the practical ways of constructing biographies for the people of Tudor Southampton. Case studies include Nicholas Fuller, scholar and lawyer whose portrait hangs in Tudor House; The Flemyngs who for centuries played a leading role in civic and mercantile life in and around Southampton, rising to the ranks of the landed gentry during the 1500s; and the Dyperes who left just one will and 10,000 descendants.

Harry Willis Fleming will explore the broad range of evidence from which to piece together a fresh genealogy of the Fleming family in the Tudor period and earlier. He will discuss the surviving paper trail of records such wills, property deeds, and court records; Herald's Visitations and published pedigrees; the role of one-name studies and DNA testing; and also draw some preliminary conclusions from the People Project database.

Hosted by The Dolphin hotel - owned in 1570 by Edward Wilmot, merchant and innkeeper, who left a complete inventory of all the furnishings in The Dolphin - this study day will be an introduction to the Tudor People Project, using archives for genealogical research and will look at the challenges of finding out the stories of those who lived five hundred years ago. The event is FREE but booking is essential, lunch is provided at a cost of #6.95 and needs to be pre-booked.
