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. 

Volume III illustrates his involvement in a series of controversies about how county government should be handled. It also covers the botched completion of Stiffkey Hall and its terraced gardens, designed in considerable detail by his father but then significantly altered by Nathaniel himself.
