HISTORY SOCIETY

THE HISTORY BEHIND THE HISTORY

In   1966,   a   year   before   he   moved   to   Wonersh,   the   late   Anthony   Fanshawe   started   his   research   into   the   village.      He   interviewed   people   living   in the   village;   he   interviewed   people   who   had   moved   away;   he   visited   Public   Record   Offices:      in   all   he   spent   twenty-four   years   collecting   a   vast amount of material. On   Anthony’s   death,   John   Paul   Marix   Evans   of   Great   Tangley   and   Fraser   Scott   of   Woodyers   (respectively   our   first   Chairman   and   Secretary) cleared   his   study   and   both   left   with   their   cars   loaded   with   books,   pictures,   maps   and   documents.      It’s   this   collection   that   formed   the   basis   of the Wonersh History Society. Today’s Committee consists of: Dennis Cruickshank Chairman Jan Cooper Treasurer & Membership Barry Clifford Archivist Dennis Cruickshank Archivist Barry Clifford Publicity Joan Tubbs Doug Sudbury
