Eshott Heugh notebook : volume 1, 1881-1899

 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 1
Call Number: MSS 8, Series II

Scope and Contents

Thomas William Carr kept two notebooks, both stamped Eshott Heugh in gilt on the cover, which served in part as personal journals, as well as records of the Carr family and the Eshott estate.

The first notebook includes material from 1881 to about 1899, and includes: notes on the Eshott Heugh estate, including comments relating to its magnetic and astronomical position made by the royal astronomer; a history of the estate and its owners; notes on visitors to the estate; sketches of memebers of the Carr family; and the history of various pieces of furniture at the estate.

While most of the notebook appears to be the work of Thomas William Carr, shorter sections were also written by Robert Lancelot Carr (b. 1863) and Frank Carr.
