New book: The Wives of the Berkeleys

Our former Hon Gen Secretary Jan Broadway has been busy during lockdown. The title of her latest book neatly echoes John Smyth’s Lives of the Berkeleys (edited as one of the Society’s very first publications, in the 1880s). While Smyth’s work took a traditionally patrilineal stance, Jan’s study considers four generations of Berkeley wives from a much wider perspective. There are more details here.
