1910 Lloyd George Domesday Survey


The Survey is a hidden gem for historians and has intricate detail about property on the eve of the First World War. No property was exempt and contains the names of the owners, occupiers, extent of the property, a description and even a sketch map of outbuildings

ESFHS Sutton Branch will close at the end of 2019

unless someone comes forward

Over a year ago Joanna announced at a Sutton meeting she would retire from the role as chairman at the 2019 AGM after 13 years of service, but as speakers had been booked till December 2019 she stayed on. The Executive Committee is sad to announce that still no one has come forward to replace her.

This is now an urgent request for help as speakers for next year cannot be confirmed until we know the Branch is viable.

Joanna assures everyone that the position is not onerous – in brief, the task involves

  • renewing the annual hall bookings

  • opening and closing the monthly meetings

  • liaising with the Sutton Secretary who has arranged the speakers for the year

There is always help from members to set up at the beginning, and tidy away at the end, of meetings and Joanna would be very happy to mentor her successor.

Please contact Joanna or Don, for further details or to offer to take on the role.

The Committee would like to extend a huge ‘thank you’ to Joanna for all she has done over her 13 years in the role at Sutton.
