Brentford Local History and Family History Day
Celebrating Brentford's Royal connections, Brentford Brewery, sport in 1912
Our annual local history day this year is to be at Boston Manor House on Saturday July 21st from 12noon to 4pm.
As well as Family History from the Brentford High Street Project website there will be displays about some Royal visitors to the house, how Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee was celebrated in the town in 1897, sporting activities in 1912 and the re-naming of Brentford Brewery.
Some early local directories and other local history material will be available, including the record of the bombs that fell during the War and local history books will be on sale. It is also an opportunity to see the Jacobean House that has been described as ‘the jewel of west London’.
As the house was a primary school from 1941 to 1961 we’d also be interested in hearing from ex-pupils with their memories and pictures.
Refreshments will be available at the café opposite the children’s play ground and car park off Boston Manor Road just north of the elevated M4.
