Yorkshire in the Civil Wars is more than a history of the momentous events of the English Civil Wars as they affected Yorkshire but also a detailed and enthralling account of the economic and social impact of the conflict on England’s largest county.
Jack Binns was born in Keighley in the West Riding of Yorkshire and educated at the local grammar school and at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. Before taking early retirement in 1992, he taught history at Scarborough Sixth Form College. He is the author of many published articles on local history, particularly in the seventeeth century. His doctoral thesis was on the life and works of Sir Hugh Cholmley of Whitby, 1600-1657, and in 2000 the Yorkshire Archaeological Society published his edited version of Cholmley’s Memoirs and Memorials in its Record Series. Jack’s other books include ‘A Place of Great Importance’. Scarborough in the Civil Wars (Carnegie Publishing, Preston, 1996); The History of Scarborough (Blackthorn Press, Pickering, 2000); and Heroes Rogues and Eccentrics (Blackthorn Press, Pickering, 2002).
When not reading and writing local history, Jack enjoys playing crown green bowls and drinking red wine and real ales, though not all at the same time. He has lived in Scarborough for more than 40 years and is the acknowledged authority on the town’s history. He is married with one son and two granddaughters.
