Hi, I remember seeing the BBC TV documentary about this story back in the day and then recently a YouTube recommendation refreshed my memory.
I have a PDF version of TVP book.
How sensational would it be to find Thomas Harden's book .
I tried to imagine where Thomas would safely hide any such manuscript. I assume somewhere in Oxford. Maybe the Bodleian Library, hidden within some
other less contentious document.
And then I wondered whether Thomas had it buried with him.
As I think someone in an earlier thread mentions, a quick search on the Ancestry website established a potential burial for Thomas Harden in the
parish if Haresfield, Gloucestershire on 8 Jan 1560. I imagine the burial was at St Peters. There is a website where gravestones are transcribed,
but there is nothing for Thomas.
Despite there being a number of Thomas Harden deaths recorded in the 16thC, Haresfield seemed to sit between Bristol where his family was reported to
be from, and Oxford.
I am tempted to visit the church yard at St Peters to see if there is any trace of Thomas Harden's gravestone. Coincidentally, I was planning on
walking the Cotswold Way this year, which I think would take me past Haresfield.
Armed with physical evidence of the interaction between Ken, Deb, Peter and Thomas, then a proper analysis of 2109 can be undertaken.
