Angela Fortnum Offers Readers a Glimpse into the Life and Times of the...

Every family has a story. For Angela Fortnum, her maternal family story would begin eight generations before her and reach back to the turn of the 18th century in England — and it is a story that she will tell and continue today.

In “Pages and Leaflets of North Oxfordshire” (published by AuthorHouse UK), Fortnum shares a well-researched family history of her maternal grandfathers, offering a compelling window into the life and times of her ancestors. This history chronicles the Page family’s shift from agricultural and labourer life to self-employment and smallholding. It also lists the changes in the family’s religious beliefs over time, as well a discussion of the richness and diversity of the church and chapel buildings that were linked in some way to her family, each of which tells a story of their own.

In the end, the story of the Page family lives on today, as “Pages and Leaflets of North Oxfordshire” stands as a legacy to the author, her mother’s family and the great changes they experienced over the centuries of living in England.

The book is suitable for anyone with an interest in family genealogy, or church history in North Oxfordshire.
