The private life of an Elizabethan lady : the diary of Lady Margaret Hoby, 1599-1605 by Margaret Hoby( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lady Margaret was the only daughter and heiress of a wealthy landowner. She was married first to Walter Devereus, brother of Robert, Earl of Essex (favourite of Elizabeth I) then to Thomas Sidney, brother of the great Renaissance poet and courtier Sir Philip Sidney, and finally to the Puritan Sir Thomas Posthumous Hoby. This diary covers the period 1599-1605, when she lived on her estate in North Yorkshire, and records Lady Margaret's spiritual endeavours, the life of her househould and such great events as the legal case in Star Chamber which took the Hobys to London. Lady Margaret's diary is thought to be the earliest of its kind, and it is one of the most significant in what became a dominant genre for women in the 17th century, the meditative autobiographical journal. The appeal of the diary is on the one hand the account of Lady Margaret's spiritual life and on the other its picture of her domestic affairs and daily routine. In her introduction, Joanna Moody presents the personal history of a gentlewoman of wide talents, interests and acquaintance."--amazon.com
From Churchill's war rooms : letters of a secretary, 1943-45 by Joanna Moody( Book )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This period saw some of the most important events of the Second World War, and few were fully aware of the decisions that were to affect the outcome of a global conflict. Yet a young wartime secretary, Olive Christopher, spent this remarkable time working in Churchill's famous Cabinet War Rooms, where she was one of a tiny inner circle of people party to the political secrets of the crucial final years of the Second World War. Working long hours in an underground bunker opposite St James's Park, Olive wrote a series of letters to her fiance, a major in the armed forces and posted abroad
The private correspondence of Jane Lady Cornwallis Bacon, 1613-1644 by Jane Cornwallis Bacon( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The letters of Jane Lady Cornwallis Bacon offer the story of a loving mother and devoted friend. Cumulatively, they provide an unfolding, sometimes self-dramatizing narrative, one which details the expansive life of a privileged woman and her family throughout the turbulent years of the early to mid-seventeenth century. The correspondents vary from close relations and friends, such as Lucy, Countess of Bedford, to distant cousins and to associates at the London court and in Europe. The letters enable us to share in the pleasures and disappointments that form a natural part of daily life, and we find, along with insights into social customs and attitudes to death, references to important personalities and the major political events of the time

Joanna Dawson, a Methodist local preacher, dairy farmer and local historian, combined her religious faith with a delight in the local traditions of agriculture and domestic affairs in the Yorkshire Dales. As she moved around Nidderdale during the mid 20th century she garnered a unique knowledge, based on the stories and anecdotes of the elderly people she encountered on her travels. Her enthusiasm led to a vast collection of unsorted and unclassified information which has only recently been discovered and transcribed. Hers is a fragrant scene from the farmhouse kitchens of long ago, when
