THE NOT SO FAMOUS The Not So Famous People and Places! Every family has its black sheep, and if you dig deeply enough its heroes (often forgotten heroes). This web page is about those who through their own personal achievements have left their mark on society in some small way. People like Thomas Arthur VC who fought in the Crimean War and won the Victoria Cross and George Burgess who made his mark in society (but not in the history books) for his lifetime dedication to Phrenology. And in not forgetting the millions of forgotten heroes of war this lens also pays tribute to them.Every place has its history, major towns and cities like Bristol are well known and well documented. But little places like Uley, a small village in the Cotswolds where Hetty Pegler's Tump can be found, are not so famous.
