The Cresswells of Winchmore Hill - A Gifted Victorian Family


A 271 page paperback by Peter Hodge containing 60 illustrations. Published in 1999. In this book we meet descendants of an ancient Northumberland family, some of whom lived in the Middlesex village of Winchmore Hill during the reign of Queen Victoria. The Winchmore Hill Cresswells, and their relatives in London, Kent and Devonshire, were talented, versatile and distinctive folk. Peter Hodge has traced their history over five generations, placing them in the context of the society of which they formed part. This study is set against a background of legal, ecclesiastical and medical history, whilst Victorian botany, art and writing are recurring themes. Determined "A first-rate family history.... A superb book." by Family Tree Magazine.
