1911 Farmer's Diary

A blog of an agricultural diary from 1911 written by a farmer from the Bedfordshire - Buckinghamshire border.
The blog will cover the entries made by the author in 1911 of his day to day life and hopefully help in identifying him and the whereabouts of his farm.

The diary was made by Mc Corquodale & Co. Ltd SE at their factory in Wolverton, Bucks

The Honour of Grafton, a group of manors in the south east of the county, was granted to Catherine of Braganza, Charles II's Queen, for life in 1673. On her death it was passed to the Earl of Arlington. By the time she died in 1705 Arlington was also dead, so the Honour passed to the 2nd Duke of Grafton - his grandson and heir. The Dukedom had been created for one of Charles II's natural sons by Lady Castlemaine. Wakefield Lodge was rebuilt by the 2nd Duke as his residence in Northamptonshire but the main Ducal seat is Euston in Suffolk. The Dukes of Grafton retained their Northamptonshire estates until 1921.

The development of this site in 2002 was funded by The Heritage Lottery Fund's "Your Heritage" Programme. We gratefully acknowledge their continued support in awarding another grant for 2005-6 and a further “Your Heritage” grant in 2009-10 to fund our “Learning Triangle” educational project which brings MKHA members together with their local schools to promote intergenerational heritage based learning.
