Witness to historical facts

Sirs,

With reference to a recent obituary read on marlborough.news:

Lest it become established fact and some antiquarian or historian of 2097 refers to marlborough.news as their source of information on Marlborough's twentieth century, could I mention that no copy King John's 1204 is currently known to exist and so it could not have been read at the presentation of the Freedom of Marlborough.

What was read was the Resolution of the Town Council conferring the Freedom - a handsomely illuminated copy hangs in a frame in the Town Mayor's Parlour. 

And the maces and chain were in fact rescued by the then Civic Secretary, Rosemary who insisted - against the Fire Chief's ban on entry to the burning building - in going in to rescue the artefacts from the strong room. 

On coming out, Rosemary handed the long wooden box containing the Cromwellian maces to me, and they were stored overnight in Michael Powell's safe in the White Horse Bookshop.

Yours,

 

 

David Sherratt
Marlborough
