Event Navigation

On Tuesday 17th October 2017 at 2:00pm at Mansfield Library.

Gertrude Savile never married and lived at Rufford Abbey in her brother’s household feeling very much a poor relation. In fact, we know a lot about how she felt as her trials and tribulations are recorded in her wonderfully frank diaries from the 1720s, commenting both on national events and the fraught relationship with her mother. Gertrude is an example of one of Nottinghamshire’s people known to us thanks to documents preserved at Nottinghamshire Archives, and Ruth Imeson will tell the story using Gertrude’s own words.

Booking advised.
