Scope and content

Diaries (in Rees' Improved Diaries) of Revd William Wallace, incumbent of Thorpe Abbots, 1838-1868, and, from 1836, curate of Roydon. Wallace was at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, and died in 1868. The diaries are terse and are mainly concerned with farming affairs. A few family matters and sudden deaths in the neigbourhood are mentioned, but little on the pastoral side save notes of other clergy serving his churches, or he theirs. He came into residence at Thorpe early in 1840. A visit to Southampton is recorded in September 1840 and a Handel Festival in September 1842.
