Dozens attend launch of Brean villager's family history book

Dozens of people attended the launch of a new family history book written by a well-known Brean resident on Saturday evening (June 15th).

Joan Jackman held a book signing session in Brean Village Hall where her new publication, 'Goldrood: The History Of A Quaker Family', was formally unveiled.

Joan, dressed in traditional costume for the event, said: "The book contains stories about the lives and travels of my Quaker ancestors."

"It has many coloured reproductions of my Great Grandmother's paintings, history from 1640 of the first families to become Quakers, and later how they came to live in Goldrood."

The hardback book was instantly met with praise from those buying copies at Saturday's launch.
