Entertaining talk about John's funeral

Members of the Paston Heritage Society and the Bacton Local History Group enjoyed an entertaining talk on April 8 – on the funeral of John Paston in 1466. The talk was given by author Susan Curran at Bacton Village Hall, just down the road from the site of the funeral at Bromholm Abbey.

Susan, who is the author of The Marriage of Margery Paston, took her usual entertaining and wide-ranging look at her subject, and impressed many of the audience with a list of the expenses incurred at the funeral, as well as background details about the family.
