Saints, Crooks and Slavers.

“The new series of ‘A House Through Time’, on BBC2, explores the history of 10 Guinea Lane in Redcliffe and its past residents. The show also urges its viewers to research previous occupants of their own home. Peter and Sue Cullimore did exactly that, after their Georgian property in Montpelier was shortlisted for the TV series. The couple have now written a not-for-profit book, ‘Saints, Crooks & Slavers’, about their own colourful but forgotten predecessors at 60 Fairfield Road. These include: a Quaker philanthropist with slavery links, a shady French aristocrat, and sisters who ran early schools for destitute girls. It’s an alternative house through time, from a current resident’s perspective. The book also gives practical tips on house history research, based on Peter and Sue’s steep learning curve.

‘Saints, Crooks & Slavers’, published by Bristol Books, is available direct from the authors for £12. Contact Peter on Messenger, email petercullimore@blueyonder.co.uk, or text/call 07730 493872, to arrange delivery.”
