The Savages of Cavendish

Back in April (2005), Andrew (no relation) posted an item on the Hysterical Historian about the lives and bequests of George and Emma Savage, and their connection with Cavendish.

By way of addition, I commented that some descendants of a Glemsford family were carrying out some research which involved the Savages.

The starting point for this work was a group of letters written by Emma Savage between 1900 and 1913.

"Some research" turned into a mammoth hunt, parts of which are still incomplete, but the bulk of our findngs including transcripts of the letters (and carrying all sorts of caveats where uncertainties remain) can be followed through the Glemsford website at

Any comments or additions will be gratefully received.
