Ichabod Wright (1767-1862) was the son of an ironmonger who had founded a bank on Long Row, Nottingham in 1761. Ichabod was Captain Commandant of a troop of Voluntary Yeomanry Cavalry. He built Mapperley Hall, gave land for a National School, and contributed to the building of Carrington Church.
This talk draws on Ichabod's diaries, his fascination with family history, his travels around England, and his dislike of being a banker.Views: 56 | Enquiries: 0
I love learning and talking about history. My passion lies with the lives of individual people like you and me. How did they live? Who did they love? What were their daily lives actually like?
Each of my talks tells the story of one person and those who shared their lives. From an Elizabethan exorcist, to a Georgian lady, to a World War One fighter pilot, I bring their stories to life - in their own words.
I have been interviewed several times on the BBC and delivered talks to, amongst others, the U3A, local history societies and the Southwell Poetry Festival.
All talks are illustrated and researched from the original letters, records and diaries of the people concerned.
