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 death of her mother Diana. Rather than create a separate database entry for each day’s short entry they are grouped here into batches for the months of June, August and September.
