Diaries of Revd William Pelham Burn (1859-1901), vicar of St Peter Mancroft, Norwich

  • MC 2678
  • Fondo
  • 1893-1901

The diaries cover clerical, public, social and family life throughout, including stays at his wife's family home at Milton Court near Dorking, Surrey. Margaret Burn is referred to throughout as 'M'. Aspects of parochial life and duties recorded include church services and music, the restoration of St Peter's chancel and the opening of a new Mission Memorial Hall in 1899. Dr Edward Bunnett was organist at St Peter Mancroft throughout the period of Burn's incumbency and is referred to in the diaries.
Travel features strongly, both in the Norwich area (usually on foot or cycling) and across Norfolk (mainly by bicycle) for duty and pleasure and further afield in England, Scotland and Europe. Burn routinely noted books he was reading and also (especially when staying in London) commented on plays, exhibitions and other cultural events. Natural history observations occur (e.g., birds sighted in the garden of The Chantry) and also anecdotes and short overheard conversations.
The diaries are copiously illustrated with Burn's own photographs. Some letters, postcards and other travel mementos, foreign stamps and pressed flowers are also pasted in, as are annual printed 'Christmas Greetings' from The Chantry.
