A Helping of History - 05/02/2019

Playing tracks by

J, Jackie Wilson, Lynn Anderson, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, Dolly Parton and more.

This week, I’m going to be taking a look at another one of North Manchester’s ‘power families’… Meet the Chethams!

Most listeners will probably be familiar with the name Humphrey Chetham (he of the iconic library and Clayton Hall). On today’s show, I’ll be looking at another branch of the Chetham family – the Chethams of Nuthurst (in Moston). Where did the family come from? And how did they acquire the manor of Nuthurst? I’ll be introducing a bit of the family’s history – and, let’s be honest, I’ll probably be talking a bit about Humphrey as well!

In addition to this look at the Chetham family, I’ll also be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers on the show.

Listen every Tuesday from 12-2pm, North Manchester FM, 106.6 FM
