Company description
The Purton Historical Society was founded in 1967 with the aim of fostering interest in the village’s past and providing a focus for historical research and conservation. As part of these aims the Museum was started in 1990.
While renovating a cottage in Gloucestershire, an old tin box was found wedged inside the large chimney piece. It contained six letters to a Miss Elizabeth Peart dating from between 1823 and 1826. They make interesting reading, telling of a secret romance. This is only one side of the correspondence, but it is evident what must have been contained in the missing replies.
