Janet Senior: The Grantley Archives at Markenfield Hall
The Grantley archive at Markenfield Hall was the subject of a long-running NADFAS project back in the early 2000s, when a small team worked at the Hall to index the collection of papers that – at the time – covered the time from 1st Lord Grantley to the 6th. A surprise discovery – a folder full of “plums” – greatly enlarged that archive, and shed further light on the family so integral to the Hall and its history.
The Plums were seemingly plucked from the archives during the time of 5th Lord Grantley, and include several letters from Caroline Norton and the wives of several Lords Grantley. Join Janet online for a journey through time.
