Elizabeth Isham


Elizabeth Isham has left autobiographical works in manuscript form: namely, two ‘Books of Remembrance’ (*IsE 1-2), a curiously arranged working diary of memoranda (*IsE 4), some pious devotional writing (*IsE 3), and other miscellaneous papers, including medical notes (*IsE 5-13), as well as a series of letters to members of her family in Northamptonshire (*IsE 14-21) and two petitions to Parliament and to Charles I (*IsE 22-23). No doubt some of this material will get published shortly.

For drawing my attention to these manuscripts I am indebted to Erica Longfellow.
