The stories of the Dunsdon brothers of Fulbrook in the 1770s and 1780s are the stuff of local legend and folklore, to the point that the escapades of three of the brothers - Thomas, Richard and Henry - have become something of a cult in West Oxfordshire.


Historical research shows that the Dunsdon brothers did indeed exist - they were the descendants of two generations of maltsters from the village of Fulbrook - and we know from newspaper articles of the day that two of the brothers were hanged at Over, near Gloucester Goal, in July 1784 before being gibbeted in a tree on Capps Lodge Plain.


 This book gives infiormation on the recorded lineage and parish records, of the Dunsdon family, details of the local area, court/assizes records, along with various newspaper and online articles.
