No April Fools

After a bit of an unanticipated ‘break’, the PLAS NEWYDD TIMELINE has resumed, with the years 1810 through 1819.

MaryBruntonVisitors, like writer Mary Brunton (pictured), leave their scant impressions of the grounds and the Ladies: Sarah Ponsonby and Eleanor Butler.

The march of time is seen during these years: finally the end of the Napoleonic Wars!

War, however, did not keep Louis Simond from visiting England in the years 1810-11; his published book came out a few years later. I *love* his tale of the Ladies — for he seems among the few who applied for admittance, but was turned away!
