Scope and content
An album (260 pp.; watermark 1828) containing poetry written in several hands, c. 1830-44, with one or two prose items and a few drawings and engravings. Many of the poems are by Mrs Hemans and Byron is also represented. References to Brynymor [?Swansea], coupled with the fact that some of the items are dated in the manner of the Quakers, suggest that Anne Knight Eaton, whose name appears on a book-plate within the volume, was the daughter of Robert Eaton of Swansea, banker. One pencil drawing of an unidentified scene is signed 'Geo. Harley 1833' and a water-colour drawing of flowers is described as being by Anna Wilkinson who married Richard Sorton Darby of Hawkswood, Bridgenorth.
