January 2017 Biographical details added

Gabell's Printing Office (back entrance in Church Lane)

In January, our busy research team added 41 biographical records to names on the website, including that of Mr William Gabell,  a well-known townsman. He started a printing business at 43 Union Street.  Mr. Gabell was correspondent for the Hampshire Independent for many years, and his trenchant comments upon local affairs attracted considerable attention.  He was at his best when denouncing some wrong, or pointing out the mistakes of the “powers that be.”
