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 5 covers the early years of the new Stuart monarch, James VI of Scotland and the first of England, with all the adjustments to both national and local affairs that this highly significant change of dynasty involved. Bacon’s own family life was evolving too, as he tried to accommodate himself to the needs, and wants, of his second wife and her two sons (from her first marriage). He began the construction of a second mansion, at Irmingland, and the building up of a new estate around it. Meanwhile, his work as an assiduous justice of the peace continued apace and its ramifications continue to be fully illustrated in Bacon’s outstanding archive.
