The Thoroton Society : A Commemoration of its first 100 years, edited by John Beckett (1997)

commemoration.gif (13121 bytes)Founded in 1897, the Thoroton Society has been promoting the study of the history, archaeology and antiquities of Nottinghamshire for one hundred years. With a membership of more than 500, and a flourishing lecture, excursion and publications programme, it is as lively today as when, on 1 June 1897, the founding fathers met in the Grand Jury Room of the (then) Shire Hall, Nottingham, to launch the Society.

This booklet offers the reader an insight into the life of the Thoroton Society since 1897, and it also includes a brief account of the work of Dr Robert Thoroton (after whom the Society is named), and of local history in Nottinghamshire since the seventeenth century. Members of the Society, and anyone with an interest in the study of Nottinghamshire’s past should find it a fascinating read.

An online version is also available.
