Resisting the Virgin Queen - Online Talk by Tony Hadland

Enjoy this talk from the comfort and safety of your own home, whilst still being able to ask questions. During her long reign, Queen Elizabeth I faced continued resistance from the dwindling but still significant minority of her subjects who remained loyal to Roman Catholicism.

This talk describes the different strategies adopted by three notable Catholics, with homes close to Reading: one of Mary Tudor’s strongest supporters, Francis Englefield of Englefield House; the celebrated Elizabethan lawyer Edmund Plowden of Shiplake; and William Wollascott, a lawyer who lived at Tidmarsh. But who was the most successful at resisting the Virgin Queen?

The talk will last about 1 hour, including Q&A. Places are limited, and pre-booking is required. Full joining instructions will be sent to all attendees in advance.

For full details and to book see: This talk is organised by Berkshire Family History Society, a registered charity no. 283010.
