As an example of the type of information we are putting together from the variety of source material avaliable to us this page, researched by Dr Elizabeth Foster, gives a short biography of the Kinchin family and their connection to our Church. This family provided several ringers over a number of years and played a big part in the development of ringing in Richmond.

One of them was a joiner in Richmond and he and his firm provided some of the woodwork that was installed in 1904 when the bells were augmented.

 

 

Jane has drafted an overview of some aspects of the interconnection between the church and the town.

Graham has prepared a starting point for further work on the ringers in Richmond in the latter part of the 19th century. The library section of this website contains the raw material from which this research commenced.

The project team have published three articles in the widely circulated weekly magazine of the Central Council of Church Bell Ringing. This is read by ringers in all countries where the English art of change bell ringing is practised. This includes the Channel Islands, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, the USA, Canada, Zimbabwe, Belgium, Singapore and Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
