Humphry Repton and His Family: Correspondence, 1805-1816

New book from the Norfolk Record Society

These letters (200 letters, dating from 1805 to 1816) shed light on Humphry Repton’s private thoughts, at times somewhat negative ones, written as they were towards the end of his life, which, although successful in terms of renown, had been rather less successful financially. The letters disclose much about how his business was conducted. Other letters, or postscripts, from all of his immediate family reveal close-knit relatives concerned about each other’s well-being and gossiping about friends and acquaintances in Norfolk and Essex, such that they disclose much about local society in and around Aylsham and Hare Street.
