Footnotes to History : The Personal Realm of John Wilson Croker, Secretary to the Admiralty (1809-1830),
About this item
Footnotes to History brings a novel focus to social history. It is a study of a "group family"– an extended family closely structured though marriages that were either internal or with trusted associates. This kind of social entity evolved down the centuries, reaching its zenith in the early nineteenth century. The family portrayed, the Pennells, provides a supreme example of such a united body. John Wilson Croker, his two half-nieces and his best friend all married into it. From diaries, personal letters, newspaper articles, Chancery papers and Government documents, Footnotes to History brings the character of family members to life and shows how they interacted.
