There will be an on-line talk by Heather Hurley on
The Scudamores of Kentchurch & Holme Lacy
Local Historian, Heather Hurley, will introduce the background of the research and publication of her latest book ‘The Scudamores of Kentchurch and Holme Lacy’. The story follows two different branches of the Scudamores, a prominent and important family domiciled in the shadow of the Welsh borders at Kentchurch in the Monnow valley, and at Holme Lacy in the Wye valley.
The two contrasting families reflect their own personalities and characteristics with the more liberal ‘quiet and home-keeping people’ who took little activity in national affairs at Kentchurch becoming overshadowed by the prominence of the ambitious and powerful family at Holme Lacy.
Although primarily about the Scudamores the book has been written as a local history, introducing people and places set against a background of both national and local events that occurred in Kentchurch and Holme Lacy. Heather’s talk will feature some of the stories from the past.
For an invitation to the show, which will be held on-line using Zoom, please e-mail Mike Saunders at firstname.lastname@example.org
