Brumwell, Stephen and Speck, W. A. Cassell’s Companion to Eighteenth Century Britain. London: Cassell & Co, 2001.  . This is a great one-volume encyclopedia of all the people, places, parties, and movements that made Georgian Britain such a fascinating place.  It provides information to guide more extensive searches, or the little factoids that add such an authentic touch to your story.

Laudermilk, Sharon, and Hamlin, Teresa. The Regency Companion. New York: Garland Publishing, 1989. This book has it all: the fashions, the language, the people, everything that made the Regency such an endlessly fascinating era is all beautifully, and accurately, presented here. It’s very expensive, but copies are available at libraries, or through interlibrary loan.

  1. Hi Franzeca

    I love your site and your research lists have been fantastic. I was wondering however, if you have a good source book for Estate Management. Our heros all have country estates but how do they work exactly? How involved was the Duke, Viscount etc in the day to day running of his country estates? Any advice would be much appreciated.
