Synopsis

A Grim Almanac of Oxfordshire is a day-by-day catalogue of 366 ghastly tales from the county’s past. There are murders and manslaughters, including the killing by Mrs. Barber of her entire family in 1909 while temporarily insane, and the brutal murder of four-year-old Edward Busby in 1871, killed by his mother to prevent his father ill-treating him. There are bizarre deaths, including those of four-year-old Charles Taylor, who was accidentally kicked clean through a top story window in 1844 by a child playing on a swing, George Sheppard, who was struck by a cricket ball during a match in 1905, and of the vicar of Bucknell, who starved himself to death in 1935. Generously illustrated, this chronicle is an entertaining and readable record of Oxfordshire’s grim past. Read on if you dare!
