Paul Fredericq

Paul Fredericq was a Belgian historian at Ghent University active in the promotion of the use of the Dutch language in Belgium. Paul Fredericq was born in the Sleepstraat in Belgium. A student at the Koninklijk Atheneum of Ghent, where Max Rooses and Jacob Heremans influenced him, he became a Protestant in his tendencies in religion, as in politics, were liberal. In 1871 he graduated as a high school teacher from the University of Liège and started working as a teacher in Mechelen and Arlon. In 1875, Fredericq received a special doctorate in historical sciences, with his study Essai sur le rôle politique et social des ducs de Bourgogne dans les Pays-Bas, he became professor of history at the University of Liège. After Jacob Heremans became emeritus, Paul Fredericq became professor of history at Ghent University in 1883, his courses included Dutch literature and practical exercises about Belgian history. Characterizing his sociability: Fredericq taught in the relaxed surroundings of his home, it was during this period that he befriended the students of the't zal wel gaan movement.

Fredericq was active in the liberal wing of the Flemish Movement. During the period of 1891-95, he was a liberal member of the city council, became president of the local Willemsfonds organization and editor in chief of the liberal magazine Het Volksbelang. Founded the Hooger Onderwijs voor het Volk in 1894, an experiment to close the education-gap between the elite and the workforce. However, Fredericq was important during the struggle to include Dutch into the Belgian education system, his activism culminated with his Schets eener Geschiedenis der Vlaamsche Beweging, a short history of the Flemish Movement. During World War I, on the invasion of Belgium by the Germans, Fredericq was active in encouraging the patriotic feelings of his countrymen in occupied Belgium and supporting non-violent resistance to the invader; as a result, he was deported to Germany on 16 March 1916, together with his colleague, the historian Henri Pirenne. He was interned successively at Jena and Bürgel; the ordeal weakened him both mentally.

After the war, he became rector at Ghent University in 1919. But resigned after only a few weeks, disappointed by the anti-Flemish backlash, he died shortly afterwards in Ghent. Besides the works mentioned above, he wrote: De Nederlanden onder Keizer Karel, vol. i.

Fordwich

Fordwich is a remnant market town and a civil parish in east Kent, England, on the River Stour, northeast of Canterbury. It is the smallest community by population in Britain with a town council, its population increased by 30 between 2001 and 2011. Although many miles inland, it was the main port for Canterbury, which traded directly with London and Channel ports and indirectly with the near Continent, before the Wantsum Channel silted up making the Isle of Thanet part of mainland England. Fordwich is listed in the 1086 Domesday Book as a small village; the town grew in the Middle Ages as a port for boats on their way upriver to Canterbury. All of the Caen stone used by the Normans to rebuild Canterbury Cathedral in the 12th and 13th centuries was landed at Fordwich, it became a limb of the Cinque Ports. It lost its status as a town in 1880 when it no longer had a Corporation. However, in a reorganisation in 1972, Fordwich was again made a town as much as anything because of its prior importance in what is now a rather sleepy corner of Kent.

Fordwich Town Hall the smallest in England, dates from the earlier period, having been rebuilt in 1555. The ancient Church of St Mary the Virgin, now redundant but open to the public, in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust, contains part of a carved sarcophagus reputed to have contained the remains of St Augustine of Canterbury; the 16th-century building next the Town Hall, now known as Watergate House, was the family home of John and Gregory Blaxland, early 19th-century pioneers of Australia. There are two pubs in the George & Dragon and Fordwich Arms. Fordwich gained angling and fishing repute for its'Fordwich trout', one of the largest types found. Fordwich has been the subject for a series of children's books by author F. J. Beerling. Inspired by the beautiful Kentish countryside and against the backdrop of the river Stour, Beerling fell in love with the old-world charm that Fordwich has, along with the older charm of the Fordwich Town Hall building. Broughton in Furness with as few as 529 residents Stockbridge in Hampshire, with a population of 592 Manningtree in Essex, another claimant for smallest town in England, with 700 people in 20 hectares Llanwrtyd Wells in Wales, another claimant for smallest town in Britain, has a population of 850 Fordwich Town Council
