"George Wrigglesworth was born in Hull on St George's Day 1851, the son of John and Jane Wrigglesworth, both of whom had been received into the Church shortly before his birth. Thought to be in some danger, George was baptised on the day of his birth in the Church of St Charles, Hull. After his primary education, he was apprenticed to a Catholic chemist at Barton on Humber, where for many years he served in the sanctuary of the little chapel there. At the age of sixteen he wrote a pamphlet entitled "Proofs of the Real Presence drawn from the Protestant Bible" for the instruction of his non-Catholic friends. After completing his apprenticeship and passing the examinations of the Pharmaceutical Society he started to study for the medical profession. At the age of 23, however, he decided to abandon his medical studies and to study for the priesthood. In 1874 he went to St Edmund's College, Douay and then, in 1877, to the English College in Rome. Ordained priest at the Basilica of St John Lateran by Cardinal Monaco on 19 May 1883 he returned to England. His first appointment was the Church of the Holy Apostles in Norwich as assistant to a Father Fitzgerald. From, there he went to his first independent Mission at Wolverton, Bucks in 1884. He was moved again in 1885 to Bedford and, finally, in November 1887 he was appointed to King's Lynn in succession to Father Macdonald." text from PA28-07-04-18.

Part of Archant Ltd : Jacob Henry Tillett, Jeremiah Colman, John Copeman and Thomas Jarrold launched the Norwich-based Norfolk News in 1845. The Colman and Copeman families still retain close involvement in the business.
The Eastern Weekly Press, launched in 1867, was renamed the Eastern Daily Press in 1870 with the Eastern Evening News following in 1882. As the business grew it moved premises in 1902, 1959 and again in the late 1960s to its present headquarters location at Prospect House in the centre of Norwich. About then Eastern Counties Newspapers come together with the East Anglian Daily Times Company to form Eastern Counties Newspapers Group (ECNG). ECNG developed further with the launch of Community Media Limited (CML) in 1981 and in 1985 purchased the East Anglia-based Advertiser group of weekly free newspapers. In 1993 it bought four weekly newspapers in Huntingdon, Ely, Wisbech and March from Thomson. The acquisition of Peterhead-based P Scrogie followed shortly afterwards.
In April 1998, ECNG bought Home Counties Newspapers Holdings plc with an agreed bid of approximately £58m. HCNH published a range of 26 weekly paid and free titles across Greater London and the Home Counties. The title portfolio included the Hampstead & Highgate Express, the South Essex Recorder series, the Herts Advertiser series, the Comet series, the Herald group and the Welwyn & Hatfield Times. Consumer magazine publisher Market Link Publishing, the forerunner of Archant Specialist, was acquired by ECNG for £5m in autumn 1999. Its titles include Photography Monthly, Professional Photographer, Pilot and Sport Diver.
In 2000 the launch of a county magazine in Norfolk saw the beginning of Archant Life. The division had acquisitions and launches in the North West and North East, the Midlands , East, South West, South and South East of England. In March 2002, ECNG changed its name to Archant. In December 2003, Archant purchased 27 weekly newspapers from Independent News and Media in two separate deals worth up to £62m. The titles included the Islington Gazette, the East London Advertiser, the Barking & Dagenham Post and the Kentish Times series.

An investigative reporter who had written a book about a perceived Vatican Conspiracy, "In God's Name: An Investigation Into the Murder of Pope John Paul I" in 1984. This suggested that Pope John Paul I, found dead in his chambers a month after becoming pope, had been poisoned by secretive Masons who had infiltrated the Vatican and the Vatican Bank. Reviewers, and the Church, dismissed the book as groundless.
