Description

The papers of Nathaniel Bacon of Stiffkey (c.1546-1622) provide a lively picture of life in north Norfolk in the late 16th and early 17th centuries and have long been recognised as a major source not only for the pre-occupations of a leading member of the Norfolk gentry but also for the interplay between local and national affairs.

The first volume of the letters and other papers of this Puritan Norfolk squire and JP, who was also a member of the great East Anglian Bacon family, covers Nathaniel’s first marriage, to Anne Gresham, and his attempts (in the shadow of his forceful father Sir Nicholas Bacon) to establish himself as a Norfolk landowner.
