The Role of the Steward as shown by the Correspondence between Anna Maria Hunt & William Jenkin

Publisher
Lanhydrock Journals, Journal (2001) No.1.


Ms. Collins took a close look at the process of rescuing Lanhydrock House in the Regency period. Her focus was on the role of William Jenkin, steward – a rather interesting field of research, helpful to understand how a country house works.

Her research was published in the Lanhydrock Journals. I found it very helpful for writing my post “Writer’s Travel Guide: Anna-Maria Hunt and the Rescue of Lanhydrock House”.

Ms Wade Martins is the expert on Holkham Hall’s famous Thomas William Coke. The focus of the book is on the role of Thomas William Coke as a Whig country gentleman and a parliamentarian. Mr Coke’s motto was “live and let live” and this was mirrored in his believe in the Whig values of liberty. For her research Ms Wade Martin was granted access to documents at Holkham Hall, where Mr. Coke lived.

The book was helpful for my research for the post “Writer’s Travel Guide: Holkham Hall“.
