  1. Off topic, but I came across this “what did Oliver Cromwell see” article, which I found interesting. One point I have heard about the U.S. Civil War is that it exposed soldiers to areas of other states and a range of people they never would have met otherwise. I had not thought about the same broadening of outlook being the result of the civil wars in Britain.

    Oliver Cromwell is known to have been in the Southwest for several months in 1645 and 1646. A decade later, Cromwell asserted that Devon’s husbandry was the best of any English county.This paper explains the husbandry that Cromwell may have seen when he came to Devon.Attention is focused on what was different about Devonshire husbandry that would perhaps have been strange to Cromwell’s eyes.The abundance ofsmall fields enclosed by high hedgebanks may well have struck him as unusual. He might have seen evidence of the practice of’Devonshiring’or beat burning; the use of the ley as part of the rotation of crops; the absence of fallow; the cultivation of steep hillsides; the use of catch- work channels to create meadows on steep hillsides; and the application of calcareous sea-sand to sweeten the acid soils. A century and a half after Cromwell’s day, William Marshall made a study of agriculture in the Southwest which convinced him that the region’s husbandry was different from that practised elsewhere.Writing in 1796, Marshall described in detail the customs and ways of working the land that Cromwell almost certainly encountered. Drawing on Marshall’s work, as well as works of earlier writers, the paper explores how and why the husbandry of Devon and Cornwall was so strikingly


    Don’t know if this is of interest, but I thought I would pass it on anyway.

  2. At last! Thank you, Stella and thank you, also, Alex. A wonderful story with a wonderful narrator.

      1. I’m sure it will be. The team of Stella and Alex has always been stellar! (Oops! Forgive the pun!)
