  • Scope and Content
    Volumes of a journal probably written between 1828-1852, chiefly in the hand of Anne Rushout. Many of the diary volumes are of a spiritual nature as well as domestic and international travel. Some volumes are indexed. Enclosed in volume 16 is an item entitled L'Entendard Britannique, the first of two volumes by Mary Bowles of French poetry. Volumes 11-14 may be by her brother, John Rushout (1770-1859) 2nd Baron Northwick.
  • Notes
    Bought from The Square Orange. These volumes were bought by a dealer at the sale of the estate of Northwick Park in 1965 and were sold to the University of London Library the following year.Recent research has suggested that most of the diaries in this collection were not in fact written by Anne Rushout. The author is more likely to have been one of George Rushout's daughters, and was therefore Anne Rushout's niece. Volume 16 is though thought to have been written by Anne Rushout.
