Lots of updates on a horrible wet day…..

Kingsland History – Bibliography and Historical Documents – We’ve renamed and expanded this page to include three important document which are all great reads –

  1. The Original ‘Kingsland History’ written by the Rev George Jobling in the late 50s/1960
  2. ‘History of Kingsland’ which is a transcript of the Jobling history plus the Kingsland History/Kingsland Village in Living Memory 1858-1958, written by the WI in 1958
  3. A biography of Doctor Bob 1849-1936, who practiced at The Croase for 60 years. All fascinating and entertaining reads.
