Tales from the Isle of Ely Petty Sessions, 1725 to 1775

A talk by Gill Shapland

Gill Shapland visited to present her talk, based on the Ely ‘Quarter Sessions’ – court hearings that dealt with lesser offences. Unfortunately we did not have one of our volunteers writing up this talk for us. However, a write-up of a very similar talk by Gill Shapland can be found on the British Association for Local History Newsletter archives of winter 2020.
