Synopsis: This sixth volume of the Blackthorn History of Yorkshire is a detailed study of the county from1558 to 1603, during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. Elizabeth never visited Yorkshire
but had she done so, she would have found a vibrant, young society, searching for its religious values yet determined to enjoy itself. Life was lived at the local level for all but the privileged few, yet Yorkshire contributed fully, and often uniquely, to the nations?s wealth and defence. The book is a fascinating insight to the county in Elizabethan times and a resource for the local historian of England?s largest county.
John Rushton was in the Royal Navy from the age of sixteen to nineteen. For several years he worked in factories. As a young adult, he studied at University College and the London School of Economics. His part time work included barrel organ singing, time and motion study and carrying a sandwich board. He came to Ryedale as tutor organiser for the Workers? Educational Association in 1959 and developed local studies in several towns and villages in north-east Yorkshire. His annual local history exhibitions at Pickering led to the formation of the Beck Isle Museum. For many years he was well known for his appearances at Pickering Carnivals in outrageous costumes. He ran a newspaper column, wrote village
pantomimes and the Pickering pageants. John has lectured in recent years for the WEA and Hull University. He was awarded the MBE in 2005 for "service to the community". He is president of the Scarborough Archaeological and Historical Society.
