Sulgrave History Society

For almost twenty years the Society has played a major part in the social life of the village producing, amongst other things, a detailed appraisal of the village under the title “Sulgrave – The Chronicles of a Country Parish”. This outstanding document is reproduced in full on a following page. More recently, a handful of dedicated members have been actively pursuing a number of different projects, including the recording of oral history, the acquisition and management of Castle Green and making the history of the Sulgrave Castle site, and the artefacts found thereon during archaeological excavations, available to the wider public. Details of these projects can be found on following pages. For more about the Sulgrave History Society, see here.

    Our family has some history in Sulgrave, and we understand also Culworth. We have found the Hawkes gravestones in the churchyard and we believe that a Hawkes may have been a headmaster at the school at some time. We also understand that there may have been a Hawkes who had one of the farms around the village.
    Can you shed any further light on this. Do any of your records have any further details. It would be great to add some more detail onto the family tree and to fnd out more about what they actually did.
