Heidi Meyer introduces
Master and Brethren: The Good, The Bad and the Heroes!
Monday 4 October
Lord Leycester Hospital
In Warwick, on 19 June 1815 the Brethren of the Earl of Leicester’s Hospital wrote to the Master:
We do earnestly request you will convene a meeting to take into consideration the conduct of Brother Thomas Fellowes who has at sundry times disturbed the peace of the house by frequently abusing and beating his wife.
In November 1817, the Brethren wrote to the Master to complain about Brother Cater:
He is still going on in a way more Audacious – for the last twelve days he has scarcely ever been sober, going to bed with a pipe in his mouth and a candle burning on the bed, and bringing his sister, a person of bad character, into his room.
Join Master Heidi Meyer, Angela Nicholls, Georgia Wilkes and Marianne Pitts as they share new research shedding light on the Masters and the Brethren who have made up the centuries’ old community of the Lord Leycester Hospital.
