I underestimated the pleasure of researching for a future book. I documented the lives of three generations in this wealthy society of merchants and mariners and their interconnected family relationships in Norfolk in the 1700s. Most are buried in St. Nicholas Chapel in King’s Lynn.

They lived in a world of fresh piped water, heated homes and good food, and many lived well into old age.

They owned land and sailing ships, which were built by local craftsmen, and the mariners traded into Europe and beyond. Pirates captured one of their craft and held the sailors for ransom. They had fine wines from Porto and furs from Novgorod.

I suspect life was somewhat better than we thought it was. The completed research can now be viewed King’s Lynn archives and local museums.
