More > an English writer, gardener and diarist.Evelyn's diaries, or memoirs, are largely contemporaneous with those of his rival diarist, Samuel Pepys, and cast considerable light on the art, culture and politics of the time (the deaths of Charles I and Oliver Cromwell, the last Great Plague of London, and the Great Fire of London in 1666). Over the years, Evelyn's Diary has been overshadowed by Pepys's chronicles of 17th-century life.Born into a family whose wealth was largely founded on gunpowder production, John Evelyn was born in Wotton, Surrey and grew up in Lewes, Sussex. While living in Lewes, in Southover Grange, he was educated at Lewes Old Grammar School. After this he was educated at Balliol College, Oxford, and at the Middle Temple.

Sodom - A James Snell Myth By Wasco Hadowanetz
Paperback: $8.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
In Mini-Series; Ogdensburg History, Volume 1, I explored the myth of the “Backwards Tunnel”. From historical records I concluded that the dual-arched tunnels were indeed built as... More > intended, with the wider one bridging the Wallkill River. However, I have been more concerned about another long-standing “story” introduced by James P. Snell in his 1881 compilation of the History of Sussex and Warren Counties; i.e., that Ogdensburg was once named “Sodom”. My experiences during eighty years, as a life-long resident of Ogdensburg, have led me to cast doubts on Snell’s “story”. If, in fact, his version were proved to be a myth, then, all early residents of Ogdensburg will have been unfairly tainted with a biblically degrading name for nearly 130 years. Consequently, my goal for Volume 2 was to research historical records in order to solve this mystery, a quest I initially began to explore in 2004.< Less
