The lives of an 'old Essex family' will be explored at this month's meeting of the East of London Family History Society at Wanstead Library.

Georgina Green's talk about the Buxton family on 26 July (7.30pm; visitors welcome; £1.50) will follow them over seven generations from the 16th to the 19th centuries, and from Paycocke's in Coggeshall, Essex to our own locality. Notably, several members of the family, including Edward North Buxton (1840–1924), were involved in the fight to save Epping Forest.
