George Fox and the Purefeys - Joseph Pickvance
This has been describes as one of the most important background books to the studies of George Fox's history. It describes the Puritan background into which George Fox was born and the predominant land owning family of the area which owned the living of the church in Drayton in the Clay (Fenny Drayton), the church where 'Righteous Christer' (father of George Fox) was a church warden. The book was published in 1970 but has long been out of print and Joseph lent me a copy and gave me permission to reproduce it as necessary.
The book is in three pdf files, print on A4 paper; Cover, Body text (print out as two sided), Map (this was an insert in the rear cover).
