Maisemore Local History Society was formed in 1998 following a very successful "History of Maisemore" exhibition.

The Society aims to study the Local History of the Parish and also puts on a series of talks about relevant Gloucestershire subjects 

Its main initial project was the recording of the gravestone inscriptions in St Giles's churchyard, a task which has taken a considerable degree of effort - please refer to the Churchyard Survey page for more details.

The current project being undertaken is the restoration of the three mileposts within Maisemore Parish - see the article by Derrick Hall via the button on the left.

The programme for the Summer Visits in 2017 is available via the button on the left together with the details of the Winter Lecture series for 2017-2018.

To contact the society email local.history@maisemore.org.uk

Independent of the History Society I have had approaches from people around the world researching family histories - here's one:

MAISEMORE is the original place of the PACE family of Gloucestershire, as stated by David Pace of London, who has written a couple books on this line of the PACE family. From Maisemore, descendents have migrated, to places around the English speaking world.
