Riots in Wheatley October 1849

Archive Notes:

Details and press coverage of the so-called riots in Wheatley with Rev Garrett's responses as curate and notwithstanding the appointment of Rev Edward Elton at the end of June 1849. The latter is totally absent from the press coverage.

Speculation as to when Bishop Wilberforce made the famous comment about Wheatley being 'the most difficult village'.

Includes reference to Elton's appointment at the end of June 1849.
