Little Lectures: Caroline Norton – life, love and literature
Following on from the Hall’s first first archive-based exhibition this year, during our 30 Open Days, our first Little Lecture of the year will expand on the Hall’s Caroline Norton collection.
A small team from The Friends’ Archive & Research Group have been working hard all winter to transcribe a number letters, plays and poems written by Caroline Norton. Wife of George Norton and sister in law of 3rd Lord Grantley, Caroline may no longer be a household name in in many homes up and down the country – but she is here – and we are telling her story this year in an attempt to shed some light on her story and give her the recognition she deserves, especially her lobbying for the rights of married women being enshrined in law.
Join us for the afternoon, when Hall Guide Caroline Eason will take you back in time to Victorian High Society and explore the life, loves and literature of this remarkable woman.
