Welcome to Worcestershire Historical Society
Worcestershire, like many of England's historic counties, is served by a society dedicated to the publication of historical records. Founded in 1893, our Society was built on the work of famous Worcestershire antiquaries like Thomas Habington (1560-1647) and Treadway Russell Nash (1725-1811), whose work had already done much to illuminate Worcestershire's past.
Announcement: The 2018 AGM was held in the Meeting Room at the Friends Meeting House, 11, Seward Close, 28, Cowl Street, Evesham WR11 4PL on Saturday, 13th October, 2018 at 3:00 pm. It was followed by a talk by Dr David Cox entitled: 'The Priors' registers of Evesham abbey 1520-40: insights and issues'.
The Society is to award a new prize of £100 for the best essay on Worcestershire history in 2019, and in subsequent years. Any aspect of the history of the county or diocese of Worcester can be covered, or places within their boundaries. Click here for more details
