Lives of Norfolk Women from the Tudors to the Victorians

Experienced local historian Stephen Poulter uses original manuscripts from the Norfolk County Archives plus online resources to reveal the stories of women who lived in this historic County between 1500 and 1900. The subjects investigated include a Lady of the Manor, a prosperous female innkeeper, a Georgian Gentlewoman and a twice-widowed 19th century farmer.
