An Ancient Squires Family
The History of the Aglionbys c. 1130-2002
The Aglionbys owed their importance to the fact that they became, and remained for nine hundred years, a solid abiding presence in the squirearchy of Cumberland, a section of local society that there, as everywhere else, played a vital part in the structures of local government and social organisation.
Readers of this book will encounter acts of violence and even murder, civil war in both England and America, a bizarre late sixteenth century plot to occupy the island of Malta, an eighteenth century ne’er-do-well taking refuge on the Isle of Man, and strenuous missionary endeavour in the early twentieth century Gold Coast.
