York was Richard’s City After all, it had known him for a long time, from his early days when his parents were its Duke and Duchess, to when he lodged with Warwick for knight training, through to his twelve years office as Lord of the North. And finally, as king. The poignant entry of his death in the York City Records sums up the city’s love, and loss, of their beloved patron. Without doubt, Richard was bred, if not born, a Yorkshireman.
THE SOCIETY OF FRIENDS OF KING RICHARD III was formed in 1978, to promote Richard in the North and especially York.
MEETINGS are held at Jacobs Well, Trinity Lane, Micklegate, York, on the 2nd Saturday in the month, 2.00pm – 4.00pm, prospective new members are welcome to attend.
