With a foreword by renowned historian, Neil Wright this book follows the story of Boston. Founded shortly after the Conquest of 1066, Boston rapidly grew in size and prosperity to become the most successful English port outside of London. The growth of the wool trade in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries led to the building of St Botolph’s (The Stump), the largest parish church in the country.
During the seventeenth century the town was strongly Puritan, causing some inhabitants to emigrate to America to found the new city of Boston, Massachusetts. Some of the Pilgrim Fathers were imprisoned in the medieval Guildhall, which survives to this day.
The Boston story is brought right up to date, celebrating the complete history of this fabulous Lincolnshire town in a volume that will delight locals and visitors alike.
Richard Gurnham has also written The History of Louth and Lincoln.
