Welcome! We are sisters and co-authors of the book The Cowkeeper’s Wish, a family/social history that traces our gnarled English roots from the 1840s to the 1930s, and examines the lives of the working classes. The posts you’ll see listed at right are intriguing spin-off tales connected to the time and place of our story – explorations of music halls and workhouses, philanthropists and silent film stars, bootmakers and grave robbers, royalty and suffragettes, war ships and luxury ships, mental asylums and candy factories. If you share our curiosity for the Victorian, WW1, and Depression eras, click the Follow option to join us for these trips back in time. We promise to take you to unexpected places.
