WHAT DO WE REALLY KNOW ABOUT JEDEDIAH STRUTT?
Very little is known of the family background and early life of Jedediah Strutt. In 19th century histories he wa portrayed as an exemplar of ‘self-improvement’ against the odds of fumble beginnings and an uncaring father. By the 21st century his origins were portrayed as more gentrified. So who was Jedediah Strutt? And who was responsible for forging his baptism in the Blackwell parish register? With Rosemary Annable.
