Lecture – Capt James Dunn: Smuggler, tax evader & shipbuilder 4 Oct, 6.30pm

jamesdunn

At the beginning of the nineteenth century, during the Napoleonic wars, smuggling between the Channel Islands and Cornwall was rife, but the smugglers hid their tracks and few records remain. However, some recently discovered papers reveal evidence of smuggling by the Packet Captains with one of the most intriguing examples being Captain James Dunn.

During an illustrated presentation of Dunn’s fascinating tale, Maritime historian Helen Doe will be using contemporary accounts and letters to discuss this most curious entrepreneur, smuggler and man of religion.

Lecture £6. Lecture plus 2-course buffet £15
