Voices From a Trunk: The Lost Lives of the Quaker

Voices From a Trunk: The Lost Lives of the Quaker


In this local history lunchtime talk, a chance discovery of a trunk of documents reveals the fascinating story of a Quaker family who lived in the Adel area of Leeds from 1537. Author Sara Woodall introduces the family, along with tales of the rapidly expanding city of Leeds. Cholera epidemics, hopeless medical interventions and the building of Leeds Town Hall, all are intertwined with the life of Leeds lawyer, Edwin Eddison, who used to tie his horse to a post outside his office in Albion Street.
