Plague in Newark

Civil War Links

In his recent book 'These Uncertaine Tymes' Dr Stuart Jennings has shown how plague was rife in Nottinghamshire at the end of the Civil War.

Many plague deaths are supoposed to have occured in Newark as a consequence of the town suffering prolonged periods of siege during the English Civil war (1642-1646).  The associated burials were often conducted in the adjoining parishes of Balderton and East stoke.
