1 MRS. N. L. TUDOR 1887 - 1890 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT JOURNAL AND DIARY OF THE TUDOR FAMILY - FROM A LONG LINE OF PRIESTS, VICARS, DEACONS, REVERENDS AND BISHOPS
BEDFORD BEDFORDSHIRE ENGLAND GREAT BRITAIN 1887 Good Manuscript 
On offer is an incredible, intimate look into the life and times of The Tudor Family of Bedford, Befordshire, England. Though she always refers to herself as "self" there are numerous other references to identify the author of this detailed day by day account as Mrs. N. L. Tudor, wife of E.T. Tudor [research suggests they have a role in St. Paul's Cathedral], mother to Mervyn, Gwen and Howell and that they are family from a large family of vicars, priests, deacons and reverends. A casual reading notes priest-relatives in New Zealand and one very interesting entry is regarding a relative, Hugh Aldersly Tudor, as returning from the Medicine Hat Diocese of the Canadian North West Territories. A later note refers to a daughter born to the Canadian branch of Tudor's in Ottawa. Handwritten the journal dates from 1887-1890 and is an account of life at Bedford as it began for the Tudors who arrived at Bedford from Burnham, Somerset on Thursday September 8th 1887. Where our author does not specify herself or her husband she excels in naming visitors, friends and relatives and as such this diary will provide a wealth of genealogical information besides being a super look at the times. Also noted was her apparent delight in seeing a game of 'La Crosse' played in the common. This hardbound black note book, 4vo, both boards nearly detached, most of spine missing, at the end of each year covered a page is set aside for 'remarkable events in our family & friends during the year' and many clippings attached. A casual reading finds dozens of names for visitors, friends and staff. Some drawings on both boards, some newspaper cuttings stuck in, some pressed leaves. Good save for the boards.
