This family history takes the reader from John of Utlay circa 1320 to 1991 and Roger Uttley OBE, the English International rubgy union player and coach to the England squad.
Over six centuries the Uttleys have enjoyed a varied and colourful history.
Documents found during the authors' research into the family past show the Uttleys were involved in a 150-year feud, that their deeds included land-grabbing, cattle stealing, debasing coinage and an appearance before the notorious Court of the Star Chamber.
The Uttleys have also played their part at Agincourt, the War of the Roses, the Civil War and the two World Wars.
This book illustrates how the lives of ordinary people contributed to some of England's extraordinary historical events.
