They enhanced the role of the Great Council and adopted Magna Carta principles, re-issuing it in November with 42 clauses. The French, however, were still in the country, and determined to take over under Prince Louis, who had declared himself king. The year is sometimes taken to be the end of the Anglo-Norman, or Early Medieval period, and the start of the Middle Ages.
The Middle Ages can be reckoned to last until , when the era becomes known as Late Medieval, The story of Suffolk in the thirteenth century was to be one of growth and prosperity. Roger of Wendover mistakenly attributed this version to King John and Orford Castle was surrendered to Prince Louis of France, who had launched an expedition into England, and attacked several towns around the south east. There is no record of him attacking Bury St Edmunds, but it has been suggested that he did come to Bury, and made off with the relics of St Edmund, returning to France with his remains.
This is the thesis of Father Houghton’s book on St Edmund, but this event has no evidence to support it in records of the abbey.

May 31st The East Anglian Daily Times reported on May 13th that the fishermen of Lowestoft had landed such a glut of mackerel that had never been seen in the town before. Traditionally, Cornish fishermen had ventured as far as the North Sea to handle the mackerel harvest.

Overview[ edit ] The horse-drawn tram horsecar was an early form of public rail transport that developed out of industrial haulage routes that had long been in existence, and from the omnibus routes that first ran on public streets in the s, using the newly improved iron or steel rail or ‘ tramway ‘. These were local versions of the stagecoach lines and picked up and dropped off passengers on a regular route, without the need to be pre-hired.
Horsecars on tramlines were an improvement over the omnibus, as the low rolling resistance of metal wheels on iron or steel rails usually grooved from on allowed the animals to haul a greater load for a given effort than the omnibus and gave a smoother ride. The horse-drawn streetcar combined the low cost, flexibility, and safety of animal power with the efficiency, smoothness, and all-weather capability of a rail right-of-way. The Welsh Swansea and Mumbles Railway ran the world’s first passenger tram service in Mule-drawn streetcar, Houston , s.

In my tree I have Sophia Pooley c. My search originated through my mothers family of Olleys all in Holt,Norfolk,with a connection to the Pooleys via the Bunn family. I have noticed that in your messages there is Susan Bunn who has enquired about the Pooleys.

And they are right. The sessions are focused, but jovial, with much joking and everything taken in good humour. You may believe that the ringing is the most important element and ultimately you are right, but a social atmosphere helps towards generating good ringing. Go to Birmingham or the College Youths practice and nearly everyone goes to the pub afterwards and many continue their ringing with trips away and other social occasions that are great fun. Likewise at Pettistree and other places too.
If you create a light-hearted social environment it attracts more ringers and more often than not good ringing, which in turn usually attracts more ringers and so on.
