  • MC 2678

  • 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.

The diary is intermittent; the first section describes a tour in Belgium including Waterloo, Germany, Switzerland including the St Bernard hospice, and Italy. A note then states that a journal for July-Oct. 1833 of a journey through Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland to Russia was lost 'at Felbrigg' and the present diary begins again at Jan. 1834 with an account of the diarist's life thitherto including his education, army career, trips abroad, his brother William's election as MP for Norfolk, 1832, and his father's death. The remainder of the diary covers life in the army in London and Dublin including references to his friendship or liaison with Mrs Broughton, a visit to a gambling hell, his giving evidence at Norwich against C. Scott in an arson case, the presentation of a Trade Union petition to Lord Melbourne in April 1834, a winter journey by coach from London to Norfolk, and family matters. Passages of introspection occur referring to his own indolence and 'castle building' and there is an appreciation of the Felbrigg landscape. At front of volume are very rough undated diary notes and pasted in and inserted are a 19th-century photograph of the main front of Felbrigg Hall, a note of Windham's career, a press article ('Eastern Daily Press', 8 March 1968) on Windham by H.O.
