The Friends of Lydiard Park

The Good Gentlewoman blog has found a new (and very fitting) home on the Friends of Lydiard Park website. The Friends of Lydiard Park is a charitable organisation, which supports and promotes interest in Lydiard House, its beautiful grounds and the St. John family who owned the estate for more than 500 years. When it was suggested that the Good Gentlewoman might like to take up residence it felt like the natural place for her to be.

The Good Gentlewoman blog continues to develop with two recently uploaded posts. Read about Mary Meredith whose first husband had the dubious distinction of being the last peer to be hanged.

Time to party? Join the Villiers ladies at the fabulous Devonshire House Fancy Dress Ball which took place in 1897 to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee.

And if you’d like to read more about The Ladies of Lydiard my book is now available from Amazon.
