Ormond Booth
I realise that the celebration year is over, but would be interested to hear about the events that took place.
I am the 4x greatgrandaughter of Ormond Booth.

Hiya Christine, Could do with you contacting me to be added to the Booth Book!

We achieved so much last year, the thing is it is still ongoing, this year we plan more exhibitions, walks and events, please see our official website for details www.pentrichrevolution.org.uk

We comprised 19 walks these can be downloaded from our site, 45 local artists told the story in art, we released 12 books and many exhibitions including one at the national Justice Gallery in Nottingham

We are taking the exhibition and completing the Australian walks in October to coincide with when the transported men arrived there

please get in touch if you would like more information,

George Brassington
I'm trying to tie George Brassington to my Brassington ancestors who lived in Youlgreave. I only heard about the Pentrich Revolution a few weeks back, so I've only just started the journey, but I'll keep you all posted.
Good work on your fantastic website!
Thanks and best wishes,

Booth family
I am the great great granddaughter of Ormond Booth of the Post Office at South Wingfield. I would be very interested in attending some of the events scheduled for this year. Will these be advertised on a web site? Thanks

Thanks for the wonderful website! I am an Australian descendant of Isaac Moore who participated in the rising armed with a pitchfork. I was wondering if by any chance you have a copy of the depositions that the revolutionaries gave after the event? I asked the UK National Archives for a quote for a copy of Isaac's but it was hideously expensive.

Hiya Rhys, Please get in touch and I will send you what I have

Hi Rhys,

I too believe I am a descendant of Isaac Moore and also in Australia.

My email address is Blondela62@gmail.com - I would love to compare notes to see if it is the one and the same Isaac Moore.

Pentrich in 1818
I have recently obtained from Chatsworth House archivist photocopies of notes on the residents of Pentrich made in 1818 by two agents of the Duke of Devonshire. I am trying to transcribe them (with difficulty in places). They give a fascinating glimpse into the people living there are the time, and some information about the Revolution. Does anyone know if this source has been used by historians?
