Dr Dabby's 'Loyal to the Crown' Lecture
DR DABBY TALKS ABOUT HIS RESEARCH ON SIR ROGER CHOLMELEY
Pupils, parents, OCs and friends were treated to a thoroughly engaging presentation of some fascinating original research into Highgate School’s founder, Sir Roger Cholmeley, undertaken by our very own Dr Ben Dabby. The audience were rapt as the fascinating circumstances surrounding Cholmeley’s rise to power were explained, from his many exclusions from Lincoln’s Inn due to bad behaviour, to a stay in the Tower of London. Dr Dabby’s lecture also brought to light the only known image of Sir Roger. After the lecture, Dr Dabby and many guests lingered over wine and conversation while he signed copies of Loyal to the Crown: the Extraordinary Life of Sir Roger Cholmeley, the companion volume to the lecture, detailing his full research.
