Wool Stealers of Milton Abbas

The following are a huge cast of interrelated characters named by Clive Barnes in his research on the Wool stealers gang of 1836.  Why not find out more about these people and what life, poverty and justice was like in the local rural community of Milton Abbas and surrounding villages.

Clive’s research shows just how using our records can tell a full story of social history and people’s struggles.

Members can read the full story on our website.
