Description

The younger son of an innovative architect and father to a statesman, Horatio Townshend succeeded to the Raynham estate when he was just 18 years old, on the death of his elder brother.  The year was 1648.  How did he deal with his unexpected inheritance during the turbulent years of the 17th century?  Adherence to his Puritan inheritance conflicted with Royalist leanings.  His role in the Restoration, his personal and domestic life and the management of the estate are all recorded in this study, which draws extensively on papers in private possession.

Forward in the World is a major addition to the history of the Townshend family and a significant contribution to the social and cultural history of the period.
