The Amazing Mudges (Bideford Branch)

Fri. 16 November 2018 at 2:00 pm

‘Zachariah Mudge’ (1694–1769) was the first headmaster of Bideford Grammar School. He was also the progenitor of a family of very talented individuals, including a horologist, a composer, a surgeon, a cartographer, an admiral and a general.

Local amateur historian Chris Trigger will present a talk on this unusual family, some with connections to Bideford, and all with connections to Devon, all celebrated in their day, but all but forgotten now.
