Thomas Emberton

In the presentation on ‘ten things about the village’ we talked about Thomas Emberton, the headmaster who, in 1891, was jailed for an assault on his wife.  Sue Andrews – whose mother Sheila Holland still lives in the village –  has subsequently given us a fascinating selection of photographs, including one of Mr Emberton together with his wife and a group of pupils.  She has also unearthed a photograph of Beatrice Pridmore nee Dudley, the maid whose daily schedule we examined.  The photos are shown below.
