Diana Beaumont (1796-1872), the daughter of Mrs Diana, kept a journal for several years. It mostly consists of terse entries regarding who was visiting, and journeys they took, but some entries are of wider interest concerning important family events. The extracts given here concern the termination of TW Beaumont’s engagement to Elizabeth Swinburne. Rather than create a separate database entry for each day’s short entry they are grouped here into batches by calendar month, dated to the first entry in that month, and given for each month between June and November 1823.
