Let me introduce myself. I’m Sarah Murden, FRHistS, an 18th century historian and genealogist and have been described by others as a super sleuth.
I would describe myself very much as a ‘history detective’ and I never really know until I begin research where it will lead, hence the diversity of the posts. If possible, in each blog post, I try to include at least one piece of new or little-known information, which means setting myself quite a challenge. It’s always very easy to take facts presented as being accurate, rather than double checking to be sure. Having checked them out I have quite often found that they lead you on a very different and unexpected journey.
I aim to remain true to the blog title ‘All Things Georgian‘, so nothing is out-of-bounds and hopefully, the posts will provide readers with a sample of what life was life during that period, warts and all.
Together with Joanne Major, who formerly hosted articles on here, we have published five books with Pen and Sword Books:-
An Infamous Mistress: The Life, Loves and Family of the Celebrated Grace Dalrymple Elliott.
A Right Royal Scandal: Two Marriages That Changed History
A Georgian Heroine: The Intriguing Life of Rachel Charlotte Williams Biggs.
All Things Georgian: Tales from the Long Eighteenth Century
A History of the Dukes of Bolton 1600-1815
You can find out more about them in the ‘Books‘ tab above.
