Their Lives & Times

Their Lives & Times

by Ruth Jopling

For all those interested in family history. Do you know how your ancestors lived? I was fascinated to learn what life was like for the peasants in feudal times, of the plotting & rebellion that followed decisions of the ruling monarch, of the hardships caused by plague & war. This true story takes place mainly in Northumberland & Durham, England & is illustrated by a branch of the Jopling family, who witnessed the pomp of royal visits, the desolation of a city fallen into enemy hands, the harsh punishment endured for their beliefs. Can you picture the clothes your ancestors wore, the cottages they lived in, life in the workhouse? What was it like to be a housewife, or a farmer? Can you imagine life in prison? The answers to all these questions are to be found within these pages, come, delve and share my fascination.

My book is published by Lulu- go to www.lulu.com click on BUY, then on "Biographies & Memoirs", then on "Author or Title" & type in Their Lives and Times by Ruth Jopling.  You then have the option to read the first few pages.

The book contains a lot of early Jopling history as well as the history of the times in which they lived.  If you want to purchase, you can pay in dollars or pounds sterling.
