Overview

Overview

This is the third volume of Nathaniel Bacon's papers cover the second of five decades throughout which Nathaniel Bacon served as a magistrate; many of them, therefore, relate to that office. However, they are not so much a record of his administrative and peace-keeping activities as of his involvement in a series of controversies about how county government should be conducted, providing an insight into the politics of local administration. It also covers the botched completion of Stiffkey Hall and its terraced gardens and aspects of family life, notably marriage arrangements.

Published jointly by the Centre of East Anglian Studies and the Norfolk Record Society.
