Time Capsule - St Alban's Schools - The Bonneys

Dear Jude

Please find my analysis, research, call it what you will, following the discovery of the newspaper and other documents during the demolition of the Bonney's.

I have started with a page, which is sort of an overview of my findings. I have followed this with 3 pages of further detail with page references, demonstrating, I hope, how all this fits together with the situation in St Alban's Parish at the time of the laying of the foundation stone, 1862. (4 pages in all)

I hope you find it interesting. I'm sorry it has taken me a few days, but I got rather involved, as you will see! It is, after all my heritage, of which I am very proud.

Best wishes,
Anne Conlon
