Our collection of Herefordshire baptisms contains a record for Thomas Spring, a bare knuckle boxer who was heavyweight champion of England from 1821 until his retirement in 1824. Born Thomas Winter at Witchend in Fownhope in 1795, Spring’s most famous fight against Irish fighter Jack Langan drew a crowd of some 40,000 and lasted 77 rounds. After his retirement he became landlord of the Castle Inn at Holborn in London, where he arranged the patronage and contracts of many of the major boxing events of the period while overseeing fair play in the ring.
Next week we are due to release a fascinating and historically rich collection of records from the National Archives at Kew. Be sure to keep an eye out for further updates.
