Talk: Researching A Place - the people, research and sources involved
Tony Sargeant will discuss what has became the official story of Aldin House involving Angela Burdett-Coutts, and the lack of evidence. Tony will discuss the history of the house, and its use as St Michael's School, a Jesuit College and a Convent School, along with the process of research required to discover the facts, and how chance played a part in putting together a story from many sources and a study of the buildings. The illustrated talk will draw in many of the people like Charles Aldin and John Morecraft of Winslow, and their reasons for being involved.
