Lincolnshire Natives and Others
Signed copies are currently available.
Here’s volume three about those who appear, at some time in their lives, in fair Lincolnshire.
St Botolph’s came first to give Boston a name, and Guthlac, a hermit, brought Crowland its fame.
There are churchmen in plenty, some high and some low, and Thomas de Aston, Archdeacon of Stow.
Poets and painters and authors abound, and Pick who built railways under the ground.
Aeronaut, astronaut, actors galore, astronomer, air marshall and many more.
Henry Law James, good at ringing a bell and Pitman the shorthand inventor as well.
An anarchist, poor at obeying the rule, and Sutton the founder of Charterhouse school.
Headmaster, good at using his cranium, and folkard who bred a hardy geranium.
Designers, broadcasters, woodcarvers and nurse, I think it is time to give pause to this verse.
With so many people to view in the book, no doubt you are keen to start having a look.
This volume includes a little about Peter Brown whose autobiography is also available through this site.
