Norfolk Record Society Manuscripts

  • NRS
  • Fonds
  • 1158-20th century

Accessions data is reasonably well recorded before 1939. There was no archivist at the Norwich Public Libraries during the Second World War but the Norfolk Record Society officers kept on rescuing and collecting archives and these were gradually brought in to the Library in the years following 1950, collections often being muddled and provenance forgotten. The situation was made worse by a new chief librarian in 1955 who destroyed any accessions correspondence the library had, though notes with the records themselves and box labels in the series termed 'pre 1955 uncatalogued' are sometimes helpful. 'Pre 1955 uncat.' includes documents deposited directly, as well as those received via the Norfolk Record Society.

In the following list, the Hobart of Blickling collection is referred to as 'Lothian' and the Harbord of Gunton collection as 'Suffield'.
