Volume Number: 25

Published: 1982

James Maggs, schoolmaster, auctioneer and general factotum of the Suffolk town and borough of Southwold, was always well aware of what was going on and of who was doing what in the town; and form more than half a century he noted down in a succession of books all that occurred.  Although no rival to Samuel Pepys, he left a fascinating account of life, and death, in the Suffolk port, here transcribed and introduced by Alan Bottomley, himself a Southwold schoolmaster of a later generation.
