portrait of Abbot John Gerard Eaves

When David Eaves, of Clitheroe, was researching his family history he came across a manuscript of a memoir written by John Gerrard Eaves, who became a Benedictine monk and rose to become Abbot of Fort Augustus Abbey at Loch Ness before becoming vicar-general of Sweden. The memoir contains an account of the Southworth and Eaves families of Lancashire, and of Saint John Southworth. The abbot, who was born in Bamber Bridge, had many relatives and friends in the Preston area. David published it as a booklet a few years ago, which has now been republished here: https://prestonhistory.com/sources-2/abbot-john-gerard-eaves-o-s-b-1909-1975/
